Welcome Amy! My sponsor....
I have a secret to confess. Now, that I think about it, I pretty much confessed it a couple of blog articles back, but if you are just catching up with my blog, well, I will confess it again....
I was a quilter wannabe
I have changed my ways.... I am now a
I have always wanted to create heirloom quilts. Leave significant things for my children to remember my by. The memories and the good times are great, but there is something about a quilt that in my mind is the epitome of love. Don't get me wrong, cross stitch will always be my first love. If you really think about it..... a quilt is made up of tiny backstitches and backstitching has always been my favorite thing to do.
So, as I blog stalked, I found a wonderful quilting website: A Quilting Sheep. It's a wonderful place to go. I felt sooooo welcome and I read and read and then I saw a link to another blog (isn't that the way it always is... LOL). It was at Stash Manicure that I saw the light. There are alot of Quilter Wantobe's. I am not alone. There are others that can't cut a straight line, others like me who have stash and don't know what to do with it. Worse yet, I am scared make a mess of it and then have to throw the pretty fabric away.
So I joined the Wantobe a Quilter Campaign. Not for the prizes, but because maybe, just maybe I may get one block done and then another, and then another..... who knows..... a quilt may finally be born.
I share this story with you because maybe you are also interested in maybe learning something new, or maybe you have lots of quilting fabric stash that you really wish you could create an heirloom with.
I share my wish to be a quilter with you and you and you and you and all so that we can all support each other in piecing together our dream quilts, tablerunners, pillows, Christmas ornaments, toys etc.
Happy stitching from the
