I just wanted to introduce myself and to pay my compliments to all of you extremely talented quilters!! I have been drooling over your gorgeous quilts and longing to have just a fraction of your skill! I'm not so creative, but I enjoy looking at the beautiful quilts of others. I am so often inspired by them. My quilts are simple ones that I make for various reasons -- mostly for school auctions and school staff members. The one I did for this year was done with the assistance of my 8th grade students. Maybe I will post a picture of it and explain the design. I recently finished a little quilt (Curious George) for my fiance's, (Don) youngest grandson. It was for his 3rd birthday. He loved it! I just finished machine quilting a simple lap quilt for Don's half-sister who lives in Indiana. I just have to put on the binding. Next I need to machine quilt a lap quilt for his sister-in-law who lives in the same house as the half-sister. Confused yet??!! I have a quilt top waiting to be marked so it can be quilted, too. It's for my brother's 50th birthday. The pattern is Storm at Sea. When I finish it, I will post a photo. It actually turned out quite well. He has a charter fishing company called Reel Scream that "sails" the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair. I really think he is going to love it.
Gee...sorry I got so long-winded!! Again, thanks to all the talented quilters! You keep me motivated and inspired! I also appreciate all the advice you have been giving on the posts! Quilters are such a giving group of people! I know I'm going to love getting to know all of you and will surely be learning so-o-o-o-o very much!!
