I finished my table runners this morning and I'm loving the spring look.
Julie has started to organize a modern quilt guild here in Philly and it looks like it will be at a time I can actually go! Yay! I'm so excited to meet some quilters in the area. I started a new blog roll for everyone who is signed up and has a blog.
Ok so get ready for a whole lot of pictures. At Ann's request, I'm going to post my quilt history. (Like I really need a reason to post pictures of quilts! hehe)
So here it goes in chronological order. I hadn't realized how many baby quilts I've made!
The quilts of 2006: Get ready for some wavy quilting.
I started quilting in 2006 when I finished graduate school. It all started with a class "quilting for dummies".

French General bed quilt- I still need to order border, binding and backing fabric. Then I can get that off to the quilter.
Fireside chat: Yeah, I haven't really done much hand quilting these days. I think I've done about 9 of 42 blocks.
