We all know I can’t sew……..yes yes yes…….it’s true……..and we all know how much I hate when women show off that they CAN sew……..but then you have women who, not only can they sew…..they bump it up a notch……..and sew bedding…..QUILTS!  Whatev…. I am flabbergasted by these women.  There is nothing like an old quilt or a new one to be passed down through the generations.  The blood, sweat and tears that must go into making them…….and maybe a few curse words if you sew like my mother.  She was always so cranky when she sewed. She never made a quilt, but school clothes….oh how I just wanted to buy that new pretty skirt at JC Penny’s……but no… mom had to make it…..She would always forget a few straight pins when it was time to try things on…….hmmmm, perhaps that’s why I shy away from sewing?  :)

But I doubt there are many curse words in

Diary of a Quilter

with Amy Smart.  I met her at the Utah GNO, and she seemed well adjusted……and very very nice.

You’ll find lots and lots of quilts on her site. She even sells quilt kits in her Etsy.  image  She sells quilts too…….this one below is for sale.  image Here’s her fav…….it’s gorgeous, but WOW!  I can’t imagine the curse words my mom would have been saying.imageI think this baby one is my faav… all the fabrics……Pretty darn cute.image And you know she can sew other stuff if she’s talented enough to sew all those fancy quilts! 

Fancy burp rags……A baby needs to burp in style.  Those are way cuter than anything my son had.image

Go surprise her and tell her I featured her.  I never tell people………I let you guys surprise them. 

Do you have a favorite quilt?  Come post a photo on my BlogFrog Community.  We’d love to see it!

    I love Diary of a Quilter! She does make great stuff. I am guilty of being one of those “sewer-types”…..though not nearly as good as her!
