My pink and brown blocks arrived on Friday!

I joined a pink and brown block swap--my first swap! I received the beautiful blocks you see here last Friday. They are going into two baby quilts, one for my baby girl, who was born in February, and one for my sister's baby girl who was born in March. I am so glad I participated in this swap. Every minute I spent on this swap, from choosing the fabrics to completing and sending my blocks to receiving the package in the mail has been so precious to me. I have journaled every step, so someday our girls will know what love and care went into each stitch!

My latest finish

I made this pillow for my friend Nancy. She is moving away, far far away. It is a great move for her, but sad for me. The fabric I used was left over from another project, she was with me when I picked it out at the LQS. I chose the flying geese pattern because she is flying away!

My first blog entry

My blog is about my quilting journey, projects I've started, finished, and what I've inherited. I hope keeping this journal will help me learn more about quilting and improve my techniques.
