Ok, here it is...my second post. I set this thing up two years ago, WHAT? Could'nt bring myself to post anything. Dont know why, but I didn't. Here I am two years later with no way of looking back at what the past two years has offered me in fabric's and quilts. Shame on me. I took some pictures but not enough to remember everything. I started quilting in the winter of 2009, just after my husband had double bypass surgery. I needed an outlet of all the stress that was my life at that time. A friend and I had been talking about how we REALLY wanted to learn how to quilt. I finally took the plunge and started my first quilt. It was strip blocks. I made enough of them to make a queen size quilt. Who am I kidding? Queen size quilt top (that is the stage it is at still...I dont know how to quilt the thing myself and sending these things out to a LA quilter is expensive.) Then I found Ann Smith with QTMysteryQuilts and her Summer Mystery. That was my second quilt and it is quilted and finished (a birthday gift) thanks to my mom.
From there I just kept going, making Quilt tops, placemates, table toppers and table runners, etc. Too many to count at this point and I regret not keeping notes about my journey. Here is a few of them that I could find pictures.

Blue Jeans Lap Quilt
Quilt Blocks for a Swap
Blocks from my first Block Swap
Sadly I cant find one picture of the quilts and stuff I have done in 2010 or 2011. That is so disheartening cause so much time was spent making them. I have given alot of my quilty treasures as gifts and I am going to try to get pictures to post later.
So one of my New Years Resolutions is to get back on this blog thing and START blogging. I intend to post about my treasures and challenges and swaps I may join through the year. So come join me as I traverse the year of 2012.
