I've been getting the Konstantin Newsletter for a few years now and this is my first response. It is 18 degrees out and I just came up for air from machine sewing a new quilt project...a blue & white traditional Irish Chain. I've made about a dozen quilts and have loved the process but get bogged down in other stuff all the time so much time elapses between quilts. A few of my quilts have been traditional but most have been a little artsy and one of a kind. My next project will be an African theme. I've just finished the central block which is a black boabob tree in the center of a black and gold 18" block. I'll probably surround it with black strips and Kente cloth prints. I love working w/ Ethnic themes. My last one was Jewish Stars of many colors on many backgrounds for my niece who is going to Brandeis Univ. I do both hand and machind quilting but my forte is designing quilt tops. I find that more artistically interesting...and I'm better at it. I tend to be a little...what is the word...careless in the details of my actual quilting. (I think what I really mean is lazy and in a hurry).
I'm interested in ideal for unusual quilt tops, either pieced or applique.
thanks for the attention.

Hi, Madeline! Welcome to the QB. Glad you said hello.
I'm in WV, where it is 16.7 degrees. We had been having 50+ degree weather, but I guess it finally decided to turn winter here.

You sound a lot like me, not a technical perfectionist, but creatively natured. No need to apologize for your "artistic temperment"! Have fun.
