My mom taught me to sew when I was in about 3rd grade, but it wasn't until 2008 when I really became interested in learning more about sewing. Naturally, I started quilting as well after seeing all the gorgeous modern quilts and fabrics that were all over the internet. Now, hardly a day goes by where I'm not making something!
This blog is named after my great grandmother, Bijou Lillian, who encouraged me to embrace all the lovely things that the world has to offer. She used to say that if you looked at a flower, really looked at it, that it would be impossible to believe that there was no God in this world. She was a wonderful artist and inspiration for me to find my own creativity.
I hope you'll find your own inspiration here at Bijou Lovely! It is truly lovely to have you here.
