My 5 year plan

My 5 year plan is unlike most peoples'.
My 5 year plan includes this fabric,

 22 yards of white fabric, and a smiling face five years from now when I finally finish this...

It's a Cathedral Window quilt I started making for my Lily when she turned 1. I thought that if I started it that early it would give me plenty of time to finish it for her big girl bed. My plans have now changed. In the beginning, I decided to sew it all by hand so it would be more sentimental and I didn't want any stitching lines. I'm wondering now if it is going to be worth the hand-sewing after all.  

 I call it my origami quilt because you have to fold it and fold it all together before it can be sewn. It really is an amazing process! It is taking a lot longer than I anticipated, but don't you think it would make a nice 6-year-old birthday gift. Or if all else fails maybe wedding gift (or first baby gift). The possibilities are endless really. ;)


  1. It is beautiful! I've never seen anything like it. I love it! I'm sure Lily will to, whenever it's finished. Plus, the older she is the more memories she'll have of you working on it, and the more she'll be able to appreciate it.

    1. I like that idea Whitney! Memories of me working on it seems like a great idea!! :)

  2. beautiful and amazing! good work!

  3. it is soo pretty! i love it so much! have we met? i live in jerome. do you go to the modern quilt guild at the quilt barn?

  4. Nicke, I don't think we have ever met, (although I'd love to really meet you!). I lived in Twin for 3 years and That is where I started The VC. I was in the quilt barn more than anyone with a fabric addiction should ever be I didn't ever attend the modern quilt guild meetings. I've been looking at your blog a lot lately and I'm really regretting not getting together with you amazing ladies while I had the chance!
