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.
