We Begin.........


Well as you may infer from my title........I am starting this blog because my sister made me do it.......She and I have been quilting for many years, having been taught by our Mother and Grandmother.  I belong to the IGQA ("instant gratification" quilters association), of which I must be President........most of the quilts I have made have been finished rapidly because I have been on a deadline to get them finished.  I can't boast a long list of accomplishments like my Sis but I have made a quilt for each of my Sons and several baby quilts as gifts.  For now I only have a photo of the most recent quilt I made as a Christmas gift for my youngest son this year so I shall post it and look for more "evidence" that I can be labeled a "Quilter".........
The Gray Kitties in the center block represent our Tinkerbell and the Gold Kitties are our Lucy, who is no longer with us....

You're off to a great start and you have one follower, Me! Welcome to blogland. You'll do great since you are so good at creative writing. I guess that comes from all the creative excuses you had to think up in your youth when you had to figure out how to get out of the house. Your quilt came out beautifully.

I hope you enjoy your journey in blogland, if for no other reason than the great friendships! Oh and don't forget the potential prizes you can win from the giveaways...get out there and peruse other blogs. You will be amazed at what you can find. You can build friendships by starting with the ones who sign up as followers. I hope you start with me...wink wink wink...I too am a new blogger..it really is great fun.

Welcome to blogland. I have been blogging for about 7 months and have really enjoyed being able to meet and interact with people who enjoy quilting as I do. I'm sure you'll like it too!
