  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

A friend of mine was asked to make a quilt block for a wedding quilt for her nephew.  She asked me to make it on her behalf, threatening the use of puffy paint if I declined.  So, since this quilt block won’t have any particular special meaning, I figured it better be just plain awesome.  I based the applique off this beautiful logo by Erika Jessop.

The organizer of the quilt sent along a scrap of the intended border.  I included it in the background squares.

For the wedding dress I cut off a bit of the swiss dot I purchased for another yard sale wrap skirt.  I love the texture it adds!

It’s hard to let this one go!
