A Post of Firsts

This is my first blog post and my first blog for that matter.  Recently, I have become a devout quilting blog follower and have found heaps of inspiration to attempt to create new things and complete personal challenges.  I am one of the lucky few to be registered for the and have been wanting to make more connections in the online quilting community.

Rather than attempt to compose a creative self-intro for my first blog post... I figured it would be best to just dive into what it is that drove me into creating a blog. My most recent project is compiled of 9 fat quarters - 3 random prints (kind of ugly) - I found in a bin at Joann's.  I wanted to make a simple top to attempt to FMQ my first quilt.  So without further ado... here is where I am with it thus far:

The top:


It is by no means perfect; but, I have found the whole process more forgiving than I had anticipated.  I found (and find) lots of inspiration at many, many, many blogs... however I usually start my quilting prowl at the following sites:

Crazy Mom Quilts
Sew Festive Handmade
In Color Order

  1. You've done a great job. I'm not much for FMQing. My machine fights too much. Will enjoy seeing more of your posts and projects.
