I want to be a queen size quilt ...
This quilt is for the guest room at the cabin. I've not made anything but lap quilts since I started ... and the thought of piecing and quilting a queen size quilt is a little intimidating ... so intimidating, that it's taken me about 9 months to get this far. I purchased the bulk of these fabrics as fat quarters last summer, shortly after I began quilting. I cut out the 220 squares of print and solids in the fall, and I'm now finally starting to make progress on the piecing ...
I'm a bit nervous about the size, particularly as I sew on a portable Pfaff ... but maybe this is my excuse for buying that new machine ;-).
New news ... I've joined my first quilting bee ... "Fresh Modern Bee 2" ... and I'm VERY excited! It will stretch me as a quilter and I am confident I will learn great stuff from my "beeing" partners! Hopefully I'll figure out how to get the Bee button on my blog at some point (techno savvy is not my middle name ;-)
And I had an awesome compliment last night ... my blog, has actually been an inspiration to another, new quilter! I remember perusing the blogs last summer and being inspired ... for me it was Amy Ala Mode ... how about you ... who was your first inspiration?
Hope you had a productive week!
All the best
