Quilting for Dummies

Serious seamstresses or quilters, skip ahead to the next post. I know I don't deserve to be on the same internet as you. But, I want to give courage and hope to those who think they can't sew or quilt. With the ability to sew straight lines, iron and check the internet for tips, you can do it too! I didn't use a pattern for this baby quilt. I bought 1/2 yard of 4 fabrics I liked and 2 yards for the back.


This quilt is for my Bro and Sis in law who are due with their first baby on the exact same day as I am due with my sixth. I am so excited for an awesome couple who are smart, fun and in for the life changing experience we call parenthood. They put headphones on her belly and play music for their fetus. I'm pretty sure my baby will be born with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder since all he hears are kids fighting and saying it wasn't their fault. Maybe I should stop sewing and go make them declare a truce. Happy quilting!


  1. Kathryn, you're hilarious, ...I thought that with my last pregnancy this time,(my 4th-all girls) I couldn't find any big headphones because I usually try to do the whole music on the belly thing, and all she could hear was kids yelling and then ME yelling at the kids to stop it..perhaps she'll be a stressed out baby, OR decide to be very mellow and quiet as to not hear my shrieking anymore..lol...good luck with your 6th, you're awesome! and I am in no way a quilter at all, so perhaps I can try, maybe even sew a straight line! ;-)

  2. That was hillarious! PTSD! Isnt't it true though? Life after the first is never the same! My cousin is due with her 3rd and she is concerned about how that baby will be able to sleep with their busy schedule if she can't be in her quiet room all alone... I had to remind her of the chaos she is used to hearing already!
