Madison's birthday and her quilt.

It is joyful to see this all done and together.  So loved.  ...lots of love, and blood, in the process, but I finished it around midnight, exactly on her birthday.  She loves it!  Kelsey asked I make her one now, but with NO hearts!!!  I have until August...I think I'll do it!

Everything was made from scratch and pieces of material, old blankets and sheets. I did not buy one single thing for this project, not even thread.  That alone, is pretty amazing!

I'm going to try to get some nice photos of it tomorrow, when the sun shines through our room, and gives me her lovely light!


  1. It looks kids love their blankets/ quilts to bits too...its s nice thing to love..hope you had a great mothers

  2. just love it. It makes me want to try my hand at making one and I SUCK, SUCK, SUCK at sewing.

  3. Karen, You don't have to be good at sewing for this kind of quilt. There was no pattern, and no perfectly cut pieces with perfect lines etc... I just did randomly! You can do it...YOU CAN YOU CAN! And then I want to see it. DO IT!!!

    Mandy, thank you!!!

  4. i love projects that can be done wholly with stuff you already own. i've discovered that way of creating things in the past couple years & that makes it almost like a treasure hunt. even more satisfaction at the end than if you bought the stuff.
    it's beautiful.

  5. You did it! Whoo hoo. I love the scrappy nature of the quilt. Like LOOOVE it. Beautiful job Danielle!

  6. Can I order one for September? :P I love it!!


Hey you!!!
