1 down 20 to go

I am so excited that I have finished the first of my quilt blocks.  This is my first time ever doing applique quilting and I am officially done with my first block and on to my second!  Tomorrow I hope to take a picture of it!

I think I found a picture today of the quilt finished at Quilter's Muse Virtual Journal, made by an anonymous quilter.  This is the closest I have come so far to finding a photo of the finished quilt.  The pattern does not have a picture or even a sketch of the pieces together - only the individual block diagrams.

There has to be a first

Well, it was only matter of time before I started my own blog. I spend so much time reading other people's blogs, so it was only natural. I guess I also needed a place to vent.

I have been doing my fair share of sewing and quilting lately. Yesterday I was told by my hubby that it was rude of me to bring my hand work with me. I am not sure about that.

I started my first applique quilt this weekend. It is a pattern that my mother bought from Better Homes and Gardens back in 1976. They are appliqued butterfly blocks. This is a first for me, so I guess I am learning as I go. I am almost done with the first block.
