    I have been registered on this brilliant forum for a few weeks now, and I love to see the pictures of the quilts that everyone so enjoys creating. I am relatively new to patchwork and quilting (1 1/2 years now), and I love it. Totally addicted. I have done crafts since I was 5 years old, starting with knitting, then sewing, crochet, cross stitch, and now Quilting. I love the process of choosing a design, then trying to see what fabrics and colour will be suit. I am always drawn to large projects for some reason. My choice of designs seems to be changing ... the more challenging the better.

    Below is some pictures of a quilt that I started a year ago, and has recently gone to a new home. Please let me know what you think. It has 56 log cabin blocks, and in each block I hand quilted a butterfly. My friend loves it. Not sure that I love butterflies anymore though:), only joking.

    I am currently working on a quilt that I am planning to 'show' in a local quilt show in September, it is a trip around the world design. It has been machined together, but I am hand quilting it. I will show some pictures of that when I have finished it.

    It is the weekend here ... so happy weekend quilting to all:) Sorry just noticed that I can't spell Scotland..... no hope for me!

    :D Hi Sharon, welcome from Mad Gertie in Kent. Ia'm also a beginner ( 1 year in September ). Like you I have gone throuh all the grafts you mentione throuh the years,but after retiring last year , I took up quilting and I am now totally addicted, just like every body else on this web-site I think ? Mind you I don't think I could have afforded this hobby before ! I am too fond of buying materials, my stash is growing alarmingly fast !!!!!.
    I finished so far a queen-sized quilt,a wall hanging, a cushen and Iam in the middle of quilting a quilt for my Grandaughter,everything by hand which I enjoy .Happy quilting!!!!!
