Block 13: Home Sweet Home Quilt Along – Three Trees from Anna Morrison of Around the Quilt Block

Yeah!  It’s time for another new block for the Home Sweet Home Quilt Along!  Today I get to introduce you to yet ANOTHER talented quilter that volunteered to share her talents with you.  Before we get to her block, let’s meet our quilter – Anna Morrison of Around the Quilt Block. 

What is your crafting style?

Mixed…and constantly evolving and changing. But, I do tend towards things that are symmetrical and even. I like wonky but I don’t do it well because I tend to like more straight lines.

How did you get started creating?

I have always created since I was a little girl. My mom taught me cross stitch, crochet, and embroidery. I think she tried to teach me to knit, but I didn’t really grasp it until later. I taught myself to quilt after seeing a rag baby blanket about 12 years ago…I decided I wanted to make one as a gift for someone. I’ve been hooked ever since!!!

Do you have a favorite piece?

My favorite quilt that I’ve ever made is probably the quilt I made for one of my niece’s, Myla, when she was born.MylasQuilt

Why is it your favorite? It’s not fancy or anything, but I love how the colors meld together and how it looks a little vintage. Also, the quilting on it (which I didn’t do) is really beautiful.

 

What is your favorite crafty blog to follow/read?

This is a hard one! I check out a lot of blogs and find them all to be different and unique. I like them all…and I’m constantly finding new blogs to check out.

Which part of the creating process do you like the most?

I love picking out fabrics and patterns.

Which part of the creating process do you dislike the most?

Binding, although I’m learning to like it more. By the time I get to binding I just really want the quilt to be finished so I can use it or give it away. I try to hand-bind all my quilts and I’m finding that it’s great to be lost in my thoughts while stitching away.

Favorite Adhesive: Don’t really have a favorite

Favorite Movie: Either The Princess Bride or The Goonies

Beverage of Choice: Water…maybe apple juice or Squirt

Sweet or Salty? Both!!!

Number 1 on your Bucket List: I’d like to have/adopt a baby
