Simply – it’s time. For quite awhile, I’ve been sitting on the sidelines enjoying many modern quilters’ blogs. Lately I’ve been feeling like a voyeur peeking into other people’s lives while hiding my own behind closed doors! So this is the year I share my passion of quilting with all.
I’ve sewn since I was a little girl. I never knew anyone who quilted and I never even owned a quilted bedspread for that matter. Then I took an adult education class for beginner quilters and I was hooked. My very first quilt was a bargello wall hanging made with beautiful batiks in mostly vivid blues with splashes of magenta and emerald-green. I called it Atlantis Rising. I would love to show you it but since moving I’ve managed to lose it – ugh!!
I then developed an infatuation for black and white (B+W) fabrics. My next six quilts all were monochromatic. I designed them using Electronic Quilt, EQ5. I referred to them as my study in B+W+Rainbows:
in between I used more than one color with B+W:
and started a Cathedral Window quilt which ended up as a pillow when I realized how much I dislike hand sewing!
