Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
This is the second year that I’m participating in the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy Ellis at Amy’s Creative Side. There are many generous sponsors giving away wonderful prizes. Please click on her site and visit them. I’m sure they have something you just got to have.
This year for me seems to be the year of piecing. I’ve only completed a couple quilts so far, but I’ve been piecing up a storm. I’ve convinced myself not to start another project until I can finish some of them. That commitment may or may not last. It’s always exciting to start a new quilt, but then again, I must remember how good I feel when I complete one.
I must confess that I’ve been wanting to do a jelly roll rug for my bathroom. A lady from my quilt club brought one for show and tell and I am just in love with it. I’ve purchased the supplies, but my good machine has been in the shop for two weeks now. I need to wait until it comes home as I doubt machine number two is strong enough to sew through all those layers in a good way. Maybe this new project won’t count since I understand it can be completed in a couple of days.
Alright, to the matter at hand. Earlier this year I made a Grandma Window’s quilt. I called it a Stained Glass quilt. I had a good time with it. The ombre fabric was fantastic. My son grabbed it up as soon as it was done. I did some custom walking foot quilting on each block and I used up the leftover fabric on the back. I was very happy with the finish. I hope you enjoy it as well.
Thanks again Amy for hosting this festival. I can’t wait to click on everyone’s entry and see their finishes for inspiration.

That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
