Make It Do

Let me introduce you to a new-to-me blog called "Make It Do" from Calli. And some of her wonderful pictures.
I love the overall concept of this blog, in her own words: "using things you have and being resourceful to make wonderful things... and make life sweet."

Doesn't it feel good to use what you've already got? I mean, isn't that why some of us quilters can't throw away our scraps? Because we know there are so many possibilities in those scraps!
I took many of my first quilting classes from Calli's mom, Leslie Isom who is phenomenal. And clearly Calli inherited a lot of that talent. She has some great ideas for ways to use what you've already got on hand to grow and make good food, clean your house, and fashionably outfit your kids. Check her out!


  1. Another friend just sent me over to Cali's blog a few days ago. She has some wonderful ideas. I've taken many classes from Leslie and Norma too. They are true inspirations.

  2. Thanks so much for the link. I popped on over and her blog looks fantastic. Great ideas!

  3. That is so funny. As soon as I saw the name of your post I thought "She needs to meet Calli" haha. Then it was ABOUT Calli. She's a fabulous gal. And she lives nearly in my neighborhood. And her mom is one amazing lady.

  4. Thanks for sharing. I love the title of her blog!

  5. Pretty quilt...and OUCH on that sunburn!


Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
