I've found a new favourite!

I've never done paper-piecing before, and I'm LOVING it!

I have 17 blocks (of 60) done so far... posting 16 of them for now.

This is so much fun!

Now I have a design idea in my head for a future quilt... can't wait to start on it once I finish these. :)

Roll Roll Cotton Boll - Step 2 done

WHOOHOO!!  I've completed Step 2 of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt.

I'm so impressed with these.   The contrast between the browns and pinks is amazing.

Now on to Step 3!  :)

Gotta love free stuff!

It's absolutely amazing how many companies and people give things away.  As a quilter, receiving free fabrics, be they strips, fat quarters or squares of beautiful fabrics is the best.

Here's a link to the newest one I've found:

Strandz - Allison Anderson

She has some beautiful charm squares to give away!

I'm definitely going to enter to try and win them. :)

First Post

Well, this is my first post.  Here anyways.  Why have I started a blog here?  Mostly because as I've been getting back into quilting, I've noticed that most of the people in the quilt group use this medium.

I like the format and easily changeable layouts.

It's been about 20 years since I've done any quilting.  My first projects were a bear paw table centerpiece and an attic window wall quilt.  Oh, and a kingsize bed quilt that was pieced but never assembled and quilted. I'll figure out later how to post pictures of them.

Now that I've started again I have about 6 projects on the go.  I've listed those in my UFO section.  Given the enormous amount of information now available, web sites and tutorials and free patterns on the net, I have about a dozen others that I want to do.

Enough for now.. have to get some work done so I can spend some time quilting this afternoon and evening.
