Today’s Featured Item – Lush Cozy Cactus Quilt

IMG_2258Hey howdy hey!  Look who’s back!   Today I will share with you a fresh and brand new quilt that I JUST finished sewing this morning.  Actually, I finished it yesterday, but I just finished sewing on the little flowers today.  I have to give the credit for that sweet little embellishment, IMG_2261which in my opinion just MAKES this quilt, to Josh!  He mentioned it in passing when I was designing this quilt a few days ago and trying to find a good match for the cactus top.  I wanted to pair it with this rich sunshine golden-colored cotton for the backing, and it just wasn’t working.  He said that it would have worked great if I had drawn some little flowers on the cactus tips, which gave me the idea of adding them as embellishments to the quilt itself.  That got me to thinking about a IMG_2264whole range of fabrics that I could design that would be intended for little embellishments like that.  That is still a very new idea I am hatching, but an exciting one!  So here she is, the Lush Cozy Cactus and Red Desert Bird quilt.  I am the WORST when it comes to getting creative with names and such.  Unless it’s totally random, like this quilt *would* be named The Darla if I were so inclined to give it a name just for the sake of it.  Have a GREAT Friday and a wonderful weekend to all from me and Darla!! 🙂 IMG_2270

  1. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

      Hi! I have tried several platforms and ultimately chose WordPress for the variety of options and yes, it is FREE! There are lots of free themes to choose from, but you would want to start with buying your domain name first, which is the name of your website. You can do a search to see where to purchase that “address” so that when someone types it in, they are directed to your site. Then wordpress is a good choice if you want to blog mostly. If you wanted to sell directly from a site, I would suggest Shopify or Wix or Etsy, or some other site for selling…But then again, I haven’t tried the e-commerce apps that are offered on WordPress. They may be great! Thanks and good luck!!
