I Feel So Welcome!

What a wonderful treat it is to wake in the morning to the smell of coffee and kind, generous and encouraging words from some seriously talented people! I am so glad to become a part of such a lovely and generous group of men and women in the sewing and quilting industry and communities.

While browsing http://www.mmmquilts.com/, Sandra posted a photo of her work in progress of her Amazing! Scrap Vortex. I am swooning with all the colors! Go see her fabulous works of art. This brings to mind a wonderful quilt of my own.

I have to admit, I am an antique shop and thrift store junkie! I cannot help myself! And since my partner in life (my sweet husband) has the same addiction......well, let's just say we have the perfect Sunday dates together with coffee in hand.

While on our "date" I found This!

I looked and looked at it! I laid it on the floor. I asked if I could photo graph it. My husband said, "Buy it"! ~ I left without buying it. I told myself, hey I can make this!

A whole week went by and I couldn't get the quilt out of my mind. We went back the next weekend. A whole 90 minutes drive Away! I told my husband that if it was still there, I really did want it. Never the less, he said "I told you so!" Only a couple of dollars later and I was the very proud owner! Look at that color! It was washed and immediately put on the bed. For months now, as I settle in for the night I will look at each fan and the different small prints in each. This quilt makes me smile!
