Morning and please bare with me until I can get back on schedule. I love to read the blogs still and yes Instagram and Pinterest have taken a lot away from the blogland. I will stay here a while longer.
I have lots of things I need to finish and some need to be quilted. I just enjoy the process of making the quilts. Choosing colors and textures and planning it all out to the quilting and the finale binding and labels.
I started this journey back in September of 1977 with my sister Billie. We took a class in Southgate MI. at the local high school. I have my first block I will dig it out and post a photo of it. mind you I did not choose the color or fabrics. It was what I was given. My sister and I did sew clothes in the beginning but I have stayed with the quilt making .It is a true passion I guess. I was 33 years of age when I began this trip! I have learned so much and it excites me yet. Love to watch it all come together. Figure out the problems and draft up sizes and etc. So this is a great hobby for me. I know my hubby is happy for me but he does not get too thrilled over the new quilts LOL You know most say seen one quilt you seen them all. Not true!! They are all different even when using the same pattern and the same fabrics, not the same but similar. I am hoping to get some finishes this year! I will post pics as they are finished should be a fun year. I did do some things at the end of this past year. I have some photos I will put on here sometime soon. In the meantime enjoy your day and get in some sewing time or crafting whatever your hobby is.
Until next time
Until next time
