The first Post!

I've been putting off my first post because it feels like it should be important.  A big lengthy introduction to me and what I do.  But I've decided that no one really cares about all that.  We just want to see pictures of quilts.  So, let's get to it.  Here are a couple pictures of what I'm working on now. 

There is ALWAYS a quilt in a hoop on the end of my couch.  If I sit down to watch TV, I am under a quilt quilting.  This is a quilt I pieced about a year ago, inspired by a quilt I saw at Cluck, Cluck, Sew.  It was sitting in my WIP pile until about 6 weeks ago.  It is almost done!  I have one more row to quilt and then it will just need to be bound.  It will be done in time for July 4th!  I guess it will really be more for decoration than anything else.  We won't have a huge need for warm quilts here in Tennessee in the middle of July.

 I am having fun following the Churn Dash Along with Amy Smart at We All Sew.  The low volume fabric you see in these first 4 blocks above was my inspiration fabric for the rest of my fabric pull.  I love how it is coming along.

Here is what I've got so far.  22 blocks down and 26 more to go.  I am loving it!

Of course as most quilters I always have a multitude of projects in the works - I'll get some more pictures up soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!
