I wanted to show you this somewhat partial picture of a quilt I made this past Christmas. I know it hardly shows the quilt but you got to admit my grandson is a lot cuter.
Anyway, this was my first attempt at making a quilt. As you can keep I tied it instead of hand quilting. Believe me, I am quite envious of you girls who can turn out more than one of these jewels in a year's time. I honestly didn't know if I would ever get it done.
But I am so glad I did. After a little recuperating time I am going to attempt another one. I love the patchwork ones the best, those that look like they were just meant to be used for everyday, not put up somewhere. I really admire quilters who can make all of the intricate patterns, but not me, just give me the patchwork look anyday.
I ordered the book Nickle Quilts from Amazon and it has some really beautiful patterns to be used from five inch squares. I am having a hard time deciding which one I want to do next.
Since I am presently in a doll making mode my next project is going to be a doll quilt to go along with one of the dolls.I tried moving that Elvis wristlet down here but apparently I still have a lot to learn about this blogging thing.
I have been entering some of the giveaways at the One World One Heart. This was designed to bring bloggers from everywhere together and give everyone a chance to meet new bloggers. Even if I don't win anything I already feel like a winner since I have found so many new blogs that I am so anxious to sit down and explore.
I am headed for the sewing room, God bless you.
