I finished up two more of Lisa's blocks and was able to get outside with them for a picture in natural light. I love how they're coming together. I'm not sure how many I'm going to make but I do know they're for a wall hanging so the twelve will be plenty but may decide to do only nine. I'm thinking I might sash them, wish I knew how Lisa will be finishing hers!
I'm just finishing up the book Ive been reading this week and have been thinking I'd like to read a quilt related novel. I've read some of the Jennifer Chiaverini ones but would like something new. Any suggestions?
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!
