When 2012 began I had only one resolution, to start a Blog. Now we are half way through the first month and I am ready to attempt my first post.
I hope my blog will be a place for me to chat about my quilting endeavors and other things happening in my life. I hope to talk about the quilts I am working on and those I plan to do.
Currently I am fininshing my Orca Bay quilt...a mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. I used the colors that Bonnie used - black, white, blue and red. It is a very busy quilt and just gorgeous. My husband's comment when he saw the top almost complete was, "Wow! There's a lot going on in that quilt." And he is so right! Hopefully I will finish the final border today and then start thinking about backing fabric.
I am lucky to own a long-arm quilting machine I have named Annie. Currently she resides in our basement but hopefully we will move her upstairs some time in the future. This morning I completed quilting a mystery quilt I pieced in September. It is very pretty. When I figure out how to add pictures to this blog I will be sure to add one of this quilt. Next I loaded a "Quilts for Kids" quilt that I hope to have finished very soon.
My plan for the rest of the day is to finish Orca Bay and put a binding on the quilt that I just finished quilting.
Well, that's all for now. I will be sure to post again very soon, hopefully with pictures!
