Patchwork Quilting

Well it has been MANY years since I have worked on a patchwork quilt. Thirty five years ago I took a quilting course. I did a of couple quilts ...even hand quilted them.

Then quilting really came in...and everyone seemed to be quilting and I lost my desire to buy cloth ...just to cut it up into pieces and sew it back together...
well....never say never cause here I am....cutting up fabric to make a quilt.

I have the easy blocks completed...Now I'm started on what looks to me like difficult blocks...
I'll keep you posted as this project progresses....

  6. The quilt project will keep you busy for quite awhile. Good luck with it. I've been without internet here in AZ but it seems to have resurrected itself this morning so I've been playing catch up. I love your shirt-to-apron aprons. I think that's something I could do too. Happy sewing.

  10. I love quilts too, but don't have the patience to learn how to make one. I am looking forward to the finished product. And if you do go to New Mexico, get off the beaten path, check out Route 66, drive up in those mountains I mentioned.
