Can I do it? Can I actually start a blog this easily?Lets find out.
Here's my MuMu Bijoux quilt. My favourite! I made it after learning free-form paper doll piecing at a workshop. There are hidden sea creatures in the actual quilting...I put them there as a fun eye-spy game for my kids. The sea waves are quilted with a 9wt pearl cotton hand-dyed by Ellen Noble (purchased at APNQ several years ago). I wound the skein onto a bobbin, then used it through a size 90 topstitching needle.
The girls and their dresses were inspired by my late mother-in-law and her love of the muumuu. She would purchase fabric in Maui every time she visited, then return home and make herself a comfy muumuu to wear around the house. I like to think of it as a real-life reflection of what women look like on the beach - all colours, all sizes, all fabulous!
