Welcome to my new quilting blog. I've posted a bit on APQ, and certainly lurked there quite a bit. Changes happening at that site were just the nudge I needed to try a blog of my own.
I started my first quilt back in 2000.
I had a friend who walked me through paper piecing this first quilt, but I was on my own to figure out how to quilt it. Let's just say my brother and his wife received their wedding gift a year late:) I've gotten a bit speedier since then, though hand quilting bed quilts still takes me a while.
This is the last one I finished, just last fall. This was for my son, and my daughter is now patiently (less patiently some days) waiting for her new quilt. It may be ready by the end of 2010 - or not! :) I'll share my progress when there is some to show.
Meanwhile I started something completely different, just for a change of pace. It's a throw for my astronomer husband, and isn't my usual fare of similar sized blocks or rows joined with sashing. I'll take pictures and post about it soon.
In the meantime, happy quilting! I hope to meet many of you through your blogs as well!
