What can I say: I am alot of fun and have more fun buying fabric and fantasizing about the perfect quilt than I do actually making them. The ones I have made are super small (baby quilts.) I would like to graduate to more sophisticated quilts. My hero is my sister in law Judy Reed. I will have arrived when I have finished as many quilts as she has. Hmmmm I wish I could think of something funny to say. JudyJ

Yes it was easy that's why I did it and someone suggested that I bring the backing around to the front for the binding and that was even better. :) Okay the inner blocks are 8 1/2" and the corner's are 4 1/2" the sides were 4 1/2 x 24 1/2" and the top was 4 1/2 x 24 1/2" then attach the 4 1/2 " little squares. I'm doing this from memory so you might want to double check that it comes out right. Have fun and show me what you come up with. I might do one again but add one more row to make it a little longer. We'll see. Talk to you later.
Judy thanks for the friend request. Which Baby Quilt are you refering to. Go by color and I will get you the pattern, either here or by e-mail let me know. Also I don't think I had my yellow and orange one up but I am going to add it, so take a peek and let me know. Happy Easter and talk to you later.
Yes, I live in Woodland Park, almost 17 years now. I had lived in Denver and worked in Downtown. Was a Secretary for 17 years there. And I moved to Woodland after I was in a car accident that left me a para from T-7 down ( was a passenger). I made the decision to move to the mtns to recover and get out of the concrete jungle. After moving I had to have many more surgeries and therapy, it was great for me to recover from them here, than in the city. There is a kind laid back joy here. A little challenging at times but a beautiful place to recover. My common law lover bolted 30 days after the accident . We had been together 14 years. Coldn't deal with my functioning differently.
So I live alone and love my life here. I live in town, shop and bank and go to mass in my power chair. And I have wonderful supportive friends here. I volunteer in my community. In Feb. I finished a quilt "The Happy Scrappy Houses" quilt for the Teller Sr. Coalition for their Fundraiser coming up in 2 months. It's among the pictures on my page.
I had camped in Deckers with friends, for many years and loved the community of Woodland Park so I chose here after my accident in 93. I have 3 cats and two dogs.
My Scottie is my youngest, 1 1/2 and my Golden is 8. I have been quilting for 3 1/2 years, A small group of us founded ""Quilters Above the Clouds Guild from classes at Ben Franklin in 2007. Which closed its doors last Sept. After 27 years here it could not compete with Walgreens and Walmart. It was terribly sad to see it go along with many of the businesses here. Three more businesses closed last month (Mar.).
I didn't mean to babble, but you did want to know more, Sorry if I bored you.
Thanks for contacting me. Hope to hear from you soon.
Blessing and Happy Easter,
Quilt til I wilt,
Ah, that would be a good name too. I'll like it even better when I can call it 'paid for". ha Bummer on the broken leg! I've never broken any bones but can't be much fun. Xrayed a bunch but none of mine. Hope you heal quickly.
Judy - Thanks for your kind comments on my churn dash quilt. It is my take on a Jan Mullen pattern in her book called Cut-Loose Quilts. I put that info with the photo now incase others want to know. It is not a fast technique and I didn't enjoy doing it much. But, I did like how it turned out all qurky. I just made it the size I needed. Also, glad you like my dream log home. I should call it "delayed gratification". I love it.
