I did it! I’ve wanted to start a blog for a while now, so here it is. I hope to share my love of quilting and any information I may find along the way!

Well, today has been a fun and crazy day trying to catch up on house work and some of my longarm customer quilts. My Mom was in town for a few days, we had so much fun, just wish she didn’t live so far away! While she was here, we hit Hancock Fabrics and bought a few yards of drapery material to make enough aprons to open a store, went home and cut them into nice little kits we then bagged – all ready to sew. I listened to a podcast on aprons by Jean from the Quilted Cupcake and immediately had to order The Apron Book by EllynAnne Geisel. This is a great book! You can listen to this podcast at: http://quiltedcupcake.blogspot.com/2009/04/episode-5-all-about-aprons.html.

My Aunt Pearl made this apron for me last year and I can’t bring myself to wear it, I know, that’s crazy!

Talking about quilts, I’ve been taking an online class with Annie Smith called Quilter’s Palette and enjoyed and learned so much from it, I had to sign up for the next class that began this past Friday, August 14; here’s a picture of the quilt we are making, it’s so beautiful:

The Quilt’s name is Pickle Road Garden and these are the fabrics I'm using, most came out of my stash… Love, love, love batiks!

As far as my Quilter’s Palette Class, well, I’m still working on it; though I’d be finished by today… so, here is a picture of the blocks I’ve made:

And I better get busy because by the end of this week, Pickle Road Garden assignments begin, can’t wait!

Till next time,
