Hello world!

My daughter has made me set up this, my very first blog. I haven’t a clue what I am doing. I would much rather be sewing another quilt.

You see quilting has become a passion of mine. I love every step in the process. Cutting the material apart. Piecing it back together. Getting those points to match just right. Then my very favorite part – the “free motion” quilting. To which all my sister’s reply “you’re nuts, that’s too hard”. For me it is the most relaxing part of making a quilt.

I started down this path 3 1/2 years ago when I took 12 quilt blocks, (which I had made some 20 years ago) to my bible study class to ask my friends what I should do with them. I did not have a clue. They in turn took me to the local quilt shop and had me join the Block of the Month Club. And I was completely hooked. It has led me to buy tools and machines I never knew existed. And let’s not even begin to talk about my closet that looks like a FABRIC STORE! One day I may even take a picture of it. We will call it confessions of a fabric-holic.

So this is the beginning. I hope to soon post pictures of my quilts and receive feedback on what I am doing. I am extremely blessed to have the support of my family. They have yet to complain they can’t find the mattress for all the quilts that are on top. They continue to encourage me to grow and for this I am very grateful.

I will return soon. I need to get back to my other machine.

Happy Quilting!
