a slight change of plans. :)

So I have promised my husband to make my new found quilting obsession a profitable hobby.
Fair enough.
At first I thought that making quilt after quilt and stocking the store with them would be the way to go...now I have reconsidered.
Making one quilt takes lots of time...and I am too craft A.D.D. for that.
So I thought of something else...to satisfy both me and my husband.
1) Whenever I make a BIG quilt, I will use the extra blocks to make a little one for the shop.
2) I will practice my quilt block making skills by making pairs of pillows for the shop.
I have LOADS of quilt square patterns that I want to try...way more than I will have time to make quilts from.
This way...I can try out all the fun patterns, use my favorites to make quilts from
and still make new things for the shop. :)
And we are all happy.

This first pair is already in the shop.

Hopefully the first of many.

How fun! I saw that www.quiltdad.com is doing a quilt-along with wonky squares. Looks fun. Don't know if you were aware of him, but thought you might like his styles. Can you believe a quilting dad? Pretty cool! Good luck with the pillows, I'm sure they'll do well.
