Oh my yes, if only I lived close enough! That would make for quite a weekend for myself and my quilting buddies! But oh well, we can dream. And if we can't be there in person, then we might as well try to win some of the goodies. And a free e-pattern sounds good to me! Run on over there to Buttermilk Basin blog and to My Yellow Farmhouse blog to get in on the fun! I love both of these blogs, they have the most amazing quilts to share! You won't be disappointed!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
