Up until recently if people asked me if I quilted I'd always say yes but I'm just a beginner. The other day someone asked me if I quilted and I just said yes. I didn't realize it until later but that was the first time I didn't qualify it. Maybe it's because I've given a few of my quilts away as gifts now or even that I made a quilt and a friends asked if it was easy and I said yes - but I wouldn't do it as a beginner. Whatever it was something happened and I became a full fledged quilter in my own eyes. I'm not planning and advanced quilts mind you but I'm catagorizing myself as and early intermediate now I think. I even got brave enough to sew a photography sample for the catalog. I loved the pattern by Vicki Bellino and the fabrics I chose for it so I decided to sew it myself so I'd get to keep it. Here's a picture of it:
The quilting is really nice - Darlene did it:
I'm in the process on making 2 more samples so I'll post them as I finish them.
