Quilt Local Blog Tour

There is one thing I love love love and that is a good book. I love a hard cover book even more. I mean there is just something about feeling the cover and then turning the pages, and smelling the aroma of a new book that just make me so happy and inspired to be creative. I have been thinking a lot lately about what it takes to write a book… my conclusion is it is a lot of work. That hard work really paid off in Heather’s new book, Quilt Local.

I recently chatted with Heather on the Modern Sewciety podcast, episode 074. If you haven’t listened you really should go check it out. It is one awesome chat and you really learn a lot more about the process behind writing the book, the inspiration, and some really great tips and tricks of Heather’s. A big fat hint… the show notes for that episode has some great resources.

 When I was asked to be in the blog tour for Quilt Local I knew I had to share more about this amazing book. I think the thing that inspired me the most was how she really took her everyday and created from it. I mean she really looked at what was around her and thought about it in a different way. So cool.

One of my favorite projects from the book has to be the franklin. I think it is because I love the story so much. (and yes my fingernails are painted green… having girls can make you paint your nails even when you know they will chip the next day:)

I think it is because of the quilt below. It is a quilt my grandma made out of what she had which was mostly old clothes. I love that the mix of materials didn’t hold her back. I really want to recreate this quilt in a modern version like Heather did with franklin. The picture above where I am holding Quilt Local is on my grandparent’s farm that my parents now have. I miss my grandparents so much but I love that I can visit their farm and feel connected to them. It inspires me to create.

Side note:: My grandma had 5 kids, went to nursing school where she graduated at the top of her class, and then went on to work night shift as an LPN and farm during day. Amazing.
