I love quilting, it is addictive really. But one of the things i miss is having someone to quilt with. Isn't that the heart of quilting? Women have not had quilting bee's and quilting circles for ages for nothing. Right? I was lucky to meet another lady who lives nearby a few weeks ago and she feels just the same about quilting. Right away we decided to work on something together.
Yesterday was our first sewing day and it was so much fun. We had chosen a pattern and each of us are using a different moda jelly roll. Hers is Neptune by Tula Pink and mine is Wonderland by Momo.
I can not wait to see how they turn out. I love how different two quilts can be, despite using the same pattern. Hopefully we both make some more progress that i can share next week!
***I wanted to add to this, since a few of you asked that i am using a pattern called Strip this Quilt, by Green Fairy Quilts. I could not resist...and i can not wait to see how our two quilts turn out....***
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
