Ready set sew!

Hi Everyone, Victoria here from Bumble beans... I did a priority HOPE quilt, (ROBIN'S HOPE) last month, and really enjoyed it, so thought I'd give her another go! I had been thinking about a project, and I think it will work nicely with the guidelines Tonya has set for this winter project...

Winter...sigh. not ready for that yet...


Anyway, When I was a little one, if I had to stay home from school because I was sick, we had a quilt we called THE SICK QUILT, yeah, I know, it doesn't sound very pleasing, BUT, It was an awesome quilt. It was washed so many times, the cotton was like butter, and the top, was just a simple red lightweight corduroy... It was big, puffy, very warm, and you could really snuggle into it, and feel better under it... (especially during those cold MN winters with only a wood stove to heat our house!)

This quilt now sits in my bedroom on top of our dogs crate...
it keeps them warm in front of a drafty door.

So, I wanted to make a new quilt, rename it. The Get Well quilt, and thought, something with the words on it, houses, bottle of medicine etc, and there you have it, it fits in nicely with all the little crazy things we can do with this project...

I am excited and ready to sew!~
bring it on! ;-)
