Being oh so new to the experience of blogging, I thought I'd go ahead anyway and take part in the 2010 Blogger's Quilt Festival.
I'm also pretty new to the whole quilting game. This is one of the first quilts that I actually completed, so obviously I learned a lot in the process. But what I love most about this quilt is that it's all completely and totally my own. I had gone to the fabric store without anything in mind, picked up a handful of fat quarters that appealed to me, and on the way out I saw a triangle template and grabbed it just for the fun of it. I went home that afternoon and started cutting...starting sewing triangles together...and pretty soon the picture in my mind was complete. I knew exactly what this fabric was supposed to be.
I loved the entire experience and this quilt will always hold a very special place in my heart. It makes me happy just to look at it, and as this weather is getting cooler, it feels so lovely wrapped around my shoulders.
So thank you, blogging world, for giving even a newbie like me an outlet and a place to show my handiwork. It's fabulous to look at all the quilts that have been submitted.
