Let the Sun Shine In...

This is my summer to make my first quilt and I am so super excited about it. You have to check out Heather Bailey's new fabric collection for Free Spirit (look at the slide show she put together). I'm usually not into such bright colors but I love these.

I first found out about Heather when I was looking up Art/craft room/studios. I fell in love with hers. How could you not? Then I posted a photo of her cute hair when I was going back and forth about the bangs. I couldn't even remember where I found the photo of her at the time. I just thought her hair ROCKED. Then I found out the funniest story. My baby sister Buffy has a best friend named Jessilee. She's a funny girl who cracks me up. Anyhow, Buf called me to tell me that Jess saw the photo of Heather on my blog and that she knew her. I guess she went to the same church and Jessilee had nicknamed her Kat (I think because we both have super cute style, he he). I thought this was so random and silly. Jessilee if you read this, post something, I'm sure you could make the story sound more entertaining. Point is, I think it's fate that I use some of her new fabric on my first quilt.
Don't you think?

That is neat that you like Heather Bailey. I have been a fan for a little while as well. I met her about a month ago. She is super sweet and cut. I know you would like her.

That was a funny, unexpected story. No wonder you found her blog...that craft room is very cute.

A get together at your place sounds great! I'm up for it anytime. I'd love to see all the fun little projects you're busy working on while over there! You are always up to something CUTE!

Def fate. I have a quilt I started last winter and I really need to finish it. I was doing it all by hand though as my office/whatever room is under construction. If you start yours, I'll get back to mine.

That's cool. What a small world. I worked on my quilt tonight for the second time. I have to say, it was a lot less stressful for me this time because slightly more familiar with it---only slightly though. But it's starting to look like a quilt, which makes me so happy. I've never heard of Heather Bailey---but I'm also not so stylin'.

Good for you, Kat. One summer we put up the quilting rack and had a quilting bee with my mom, Aunt Louise, Aunt Lucille (twins) and me. The quilt top was one that Grandma Meyer made and we quilted it together. Then another time at Relief Societ Grandma Leavitt showed me how to tie a quilt. Did you know that Sweet Sister Leavitt made the wedding cake for the wedding reception for us at Auntie Lillie's ? We wanted her to stay, but she couldn't. The cake was beautiful.....Glenn described me and how he felt about the "personality" of the cake should be sweet and feminine....kind of like the gorgeous pink and white, ruffled dress that I wore. You know, the one you girls liked to play dress-up in. Anyway, I love Sister Leavitt.....a special angel. Have fun quilting....Mommy

I love Heather Bailey - she for sure has your style. And her Sweet Shop craft room is to die for (jealous!)

I don’t know as though I can add to you post but, to tell you how the Heather/Kat name change came about…One day in church we were having a "good news minute" where basically if someone has some good news they want to share they stand up and share it. Heather stood up to announce that she had finally reached a certain number of subscribers to her blog. I had just learned a few weeks before what blog was so I thought it was kind of funny that I was hearing the word again. My mom was sitting next to me so after church she asked me what a blog was. This is when I told my mom that Heather reminded me of Kat because of the bangs and excellent style! When I went home I showed my mom a picture of you and she said something to the effect of wow, they do look similar. For the next year, we always referred to her as Kat and actually I forgot what her name really was because I only knew her as Kat. - Love ya, Jess
