My first blog post

I'm new to blogging and to quilting, but I thought I would give this a try. Here's a warning: I love taking pictures but hate writing! I've actually been working on my first quilt since last summer. I'm in nursing school though, so I don't have a whole lot of time to do anything other than study. As a result, I will always be behind in the fabric trends. Sorry. Now that summer is here, I can work on quilts again!

I was inspired by this quilt. I designed my own pattern and paper pieced the whole thing. I started with a honey bun - Soiree by Lila Tueller and went from there. It is queen sized. It's been basted, and I'm about 3/4ths of the way done quilting. I just need a few days to finish it up and then add the binding.


Thanks for reading!

P.S. I designed my blog header using digital scrapbook supplies by Carrie Stephens.
