Day 2 prompt for #MarchMeetTheMaker is "favorite to make". I love baking chocolate chip cookies! I love to eat one right off the pan, just as soon as it has cooled enough to handle. I may or may not have a super, top secret recipe that I may or may not be willing to share!
But seriously, I love making quilts and purses and aprons and pillows and...well, I just love to sew! Period. I love choosing a pattern, then choosing the fabric(s), then watching the whole mess come together again. I have been sewing almost as long as I can remember. And that's a long time, because I'm pretty old!

Joining another photo challenge. Why? Because it helps me feel connected to so many amazing people, from all over the world! It reminds me that my little corner of the world is just a very small part of something so much bigger.
Day 1 of #MarchMeetTheMaker is "You", meaning me, of course. I'm Jenny and I am the owner of a small online company, "the shabby trunk". I make handcrafted quilts, bags, aprons, pillows and more, to give away and to sell in my etsy shop. I also design patterns...mostly quilts.
My family is the center of my universe and it's a good thing I like them. Lol. We have six children, thirteen grandchildren (#14 due in June), and we are currently raising three of the grands (ages 2, 5 and 10). Things are always hoppin' around here, so I will probably need to skip a few of the prompts, but I'm looking forward to getting to know @joannehawker and all the other makers! Thanks for letting me play along!

Got my hands on the #feministquilt by the amazing @darcialexis tonight. We decided this one is destined for the history books. Plus, half-square triangles for days! Pattern coming soon! Also, see her page for a much better photo. πŸ’•βœ¨#hst #machineapplique #politicalquilts #art #quiltart #feminism #women #quilters #quiltcrush #halfsquaretriangles #womensupportwomen

This beautiful Mondrianesque piece is a #quiltcon2016 quilt. Bummed that it didn't get a label to identify the makers. #quiltcrush

Note to self: When swapping with @evildemondevildog in the future, always make it bigger and better than the terms agreed upon. He sent me TWO beautiful minis AND some cute notions AND a bag of doggy treats. I officially am the queen of lame. Send out the Lame Police to haul me away in handcuffs! πŸ˜πŸš¨πŸš“ Paul, thank you from the depths of my heart! You are beyond generous and such a freaking amazing quilter!! πŸ’– #quiltcrush #myhubbydoesntmind
