Plus quilts and a shop update

Good Morning!

My little HIPPworks shop is back, stocked with new quilts, and now in a new location on Etsy. Please stop by and take a peek!

It has been a long time since I last had quilts for sale. Almost a year! The four ADOPT collection quilts have all been sold and gone to good homes – two with baby boys and two with baby girls. I’ve seen photos of the babies with their HIPPworks quilts and, my goodness, my heart just sang. I imagine this is the same feeling I will get when Miss M grows up and leaves the nest – out in the wild wide world having a beautiful life on her own.

My time for quilting over the past year has been shorter and more sporadic. I’ve still made a few quilts: for donation, gifting (new nephew!), or for use within our own home. Those quilts all ended up fitting together into a collection of their own that I’ve named ADDITION.

One lone quilt from the ADDITION collection is left so it is now listed for sale in the HIPPworks shop. I’d like to tell the story of the ADDITION collection to you but will save that for another post; too much to say all at once.

The last few weeks have seen a dramatic change for the good as far as how I am able to allocate my time. It has provided more flexibility and allowed me to once again carve some intentional space for creativity. I was eager to dive into a new collection of quilts but I couldn’t shake the plus signs of the ADDITION collection. The simplicity of them is so appealing to me right now, and the the possibilities for color and fabric variations are fun to play with. So the ADDED collection was born.

Thanks for stopping by. I’m looking forward to telling the stories of these new quilts here.
