Newbie from Northwest Iowa.
I love quilting! My first quilt was a raid of the rag bag. The most common fabric were socks... So I cut off the feet, cut up the side and started sewing. On the floor using my knee on the foot pedal. I wish I knew where that project was.
My most current project is piecing together a large panel to be used as a Roman shade for the west window directly above the computer. Using wildlife panels and their accompanying fabrics. If it goes as well as planned will make more for other windows in the house.
I also have projects in other stages. The one I am quilting by hand is a Medallion Quilt. And the latest top finished is from the book One Block Wonder done with a class at Calico Cupboard - teacher Holly! I want to do another with Christmas fabrics but can't find the fabric pictured in my head to do it with.
Other interests - My 2 girls ages 17 and 13; Arabians; Papillons; hostas and other flowers; and reading.
Look forward to getting to know others with the quilting habit!
