Leah's Quilt Progress

Good morning!!

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter! We had a great day with family, yummy food (too much yummy food), and beautiful weather. And I have some progress to share with my quilt! I picked a free pattern from Moda's website, got all my fabric cut, and I have 5 blocks completed!

I'm in love with all of the colors I'm using. I find myself smiling as I finish each block. This is very rewarding for me. I can't wait until it's finished!

Making My First Quilt!

Hi everyone!

I've decided it's finally time for me to make a quilt. I've grown up in a family of quilters, I've worked for PQP for three years and still haven't learned to quilt. So I wandered around the Woolen Willow this morning and my eyes went straight to Edyta Sitar's Laundry Basket Quilts fabric (I love everything she makes!) I first fell in love with her designs at Spring Quilt Market last year in Portland, OR.
So now I have two jelly rolls and a charm pack:

I'm sure between my mom, Aunt Jeni and Aunt Gretchen, I can come up with a design, but I'd also like input from our followers. If you have any ideas for a beginner quilt, please share them with me! I'm so excited to get started :)

I hope you didn't think I fell into a black hole!  You know how we sometimes get hijacked on this interesting journey of life?  Well, that’s been happening a lot for moi these days, but I managed to negotiate a little time to myself.  I spent that time happily stitchin’ compass star and setting blocks, and next thing you know, a beautiful border appeared on my quilt!

As you know, I’m a rookie at this stuff.  Somerset is a really nice project for learning and practicing.  I recommend it highly to anyone with any level of experience.  If you are working on it, or have completed it, please share photos with us.

So….I started this project almost a year ago:  April 26ish, 2013.  Wonder if I can finish it before April 26th this year?  The fourth (and final) installment calls for compasses, pinwheels, and a scrappy dogtooth border.  Sounds fun.  I think I will close for now so I can start cutting.  Thanks for your time.

Happy October!!

This is my favorite time of year.. cool weather, changing leaves, fall scented candles and pumpkin flavored everything! And even though fall is near, the Winter 2013 issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects will be here soon! Can you believe it? We have so many great projects in this one! Here is a picture of the cover photo and a collage of some of the projects featured inside!

 We also sent out a newsletter yesterday. In case you haven't seen it, there is a free pattern, a giveaway, and another sneak peak! 

Happy Quilting!!
