Jumping right in………..

Hello! This will be my very first blog post! I’m so excited to be able to talk about the things I love with everyone! As you’ve probably already noticed, my hobby (obsession) is quilting. While I’ve been sewing since junior high school (a very long time ago), and have made clothing, drapes, curtains, pillows and other crafts, I had always wanted to make quilts.

I was inspired by my Aunt Nannies nine patch quilt, which is the cover photo for this blog. She made this quilt in the 1940’s and I have always loved it. The entire quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted, with a self binding on it. While it’s not fancy, the time and love that went into this quilt continues to inspire me every day to do what I love. There have been several quilters in my family and I’ve been told by my mother that I come by it naturally.

So, I just wanted to say hello and to introduce myself! I’m so excited about this opportunity and looking forward to sharing and learning from other quilters and sewists!

    • Oh wow. That’s a tough question. It’s probably a toss up between the one I did for my granddaughter and the one I’m working on right now, the flowering snowball. The flowering snowball was inspired by one that I saw on Molly Flanders Makerie site. It’s absolutely gorgeous and her fabric and quilting choices were absolutely perfect. I fell in love with it the instant I saw it and HAD to make one. Which, by the way, is turning into HAVING to make several, I think! 🙂 Thanks for asking and I’ll see if I can figure out how to post pics of both the grandbabys quilt and the flowering snowball so you can see them.
