First up is Kirsten Aufderheide, a cosmetologist and quilting instructor from Santa Cruz, CA. Funny story about how she came across her first copy of Sew Red: her mother, Annie Smith of the podcast and blog Annie's Quilting Stash (http://simplearts.com/blogs/) had a copy for review. Kirsten saw it and liked it so much, she carried it home with her without realizing it was her mom's review copy! She decided to make the "You Are So Loved" quilt by Vanessa Christenson for a friend who recently had a baby, and it came out beautifully!
She used Bears in the Woods fabric by David Walker to go along with the teddy bear nursery theme. Cutest of all: her husband helped her cut out all the fabric!
Laurie of the House of 34 do-it-yourself website/blog made the Sonoma Purse by Patty Young. She used gorgeous batik fabrics from her stash and did a wonderful job!
Check back next time for more great Sew Red projects and happy sewing!
