    I'm a long-time sewer but fairly new to quilting. I got bitten by the quilting bug a few months ago, while doing a set of machine embroidery scriptures. I thought, "Wow, they'd look great as a wall hanging ....." and my first quilt was born. I don't have it completed yet, because I'm still trying to decide whether to sash it or not, but I have finished a couple of smaller quilts since then, and they are pictured here. The purple window pane was my first, and the log cabin in yellows and reds became my husband's as soon as he saw it. It's a nice feeling when your family loves what you do, too.

    Your quilts are very nice, but I'm very distracted by your avatar... hard to take my eyes off that gorgeous foal. :-D

    The illusion of depth on the attic window quilt is great. Good job. And I love the colors in the log cabin.

    Welcome from a fellow Oregonian. Log cabin quilts are one of my ALL time favorites...
    I'm impressed with your "beginner" quilts. I think when I first started, I just sewed squares together, and tied it with yarn. We've come a long way :)
