so far i have made 7 blocks of 10 x 10 1.5" squares. i am going to set a goal of making at least 4 blocks per week for a total of 81 blocks. i have a goal of making this quilt a queen sized 90 x 90 quilt. i am using both strip sets and individual squares to make these blocks as i do not mind having repeats.
i am working to incorporate into this quilt top all of my fabric loves and all the fabrics in my stash such as african prints (from ghana & senegal), modern prints, batiks,

Well, snow every day since Wednesday! Not too much today, just a heavy dusting, but dear hubby did do some scraping with his ATV and plow blade (maybe just because he likes to do that?).
I finished two small quilts this weekend. One is 17" square and will go to my March DQ Swap partner, so I can't show it to you, but I can show the AAQI little quilt I made!
I started taking quilting lessons 14 yrs. ago, but never continued because I became pregnant at 40 and had to stay in bed my whole pregnancy. Instead of learning to quilt my dads wife taught me to crochet. Love to crochet, cross stitch, sew etc. Both my daughters are married now, but still have a 14 yr. old son at home at the young age of 55. Will be married 27 yrs in April and this month I'm an 8 yr. breast cancer survivor. Now I'd like to continue my dream of hand quilting. It's difficult

I am looking for someone who has a sample page of meandering stitching I can run a copy of to practice on a white board. I am particularly looking for the larger puzzle piece look. I just bought a long arm and am looking for practice pages before I actually quilt my first project. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I've been quilting less than 2 years and the ones I started with last January were definately the work of a baby quilter. Now that I'm a toddler I can really see the difference!
