My first quilt
I have been blogging at http://wannabequiltartisttjm.blogspot.com for quite a while YET while setting this site up it offered an onsite blog so I figured it might be a nice way to archive my quilts and some of my creative designs.
So will start off by posting about my very first quilt. When I moved to VA, I joined a quilt guild as a way to try to meet new people. I choose to join a quilt guild because I had promised my youngest son long ago that I would someday learn to quilt so I could create him a t-shirt quilt.
So my first quilt was a pattern called turning twenty. I was told to choose 20 fat quarters and show up for a workshop. I call this my glow in the dark quilt because I just choose 20 fabrics that attracted my interests and the quilt actually looked like it glowed…The recipients were my son JB and his now wife Claire. The year was 2006.
I've begun this blog to serve as a archive of my quilts.
