    Hello from Michigan!

    Hi everyone!
    I am relatively new to quilting. I have sewn both for myself and professionally over the years, so I guess I can call myself a seamstress, but I have only been quilting for a couple of years.

    I have 5 quilt tops under my belt and working on number 6. Two are ideas of my own and 3 were made with patterns. The current project under my needle is Moda Blockhead number 24 with my own twist on it. It's supposed to be a 2 color block. I used 14 colors. Work takes up 14 hours in a day, so I don't have a lot of time for my 'hobby', but I do pretty good.

    I like bold, bright, saturated colors. Nothing meek and mild yet, but there's a first time for everything!

    Happy to be here!
