Quilt With Us

This will be my first blog ever!  My first grandbaby is on the way in April, and my quilting has really picked up speed lately, AND I just ordered a camera which uploads directly to the net.  So put all that together, and it's time for a quilt-making, grandmothering, picture-taking spree, and where better to share all that than with a like-minded group?!

I just found Connecting Threads a couple months ago, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their fabrics and reasonable prices.  I hope to have a stash full of CT fabrics almost exclusively, but of course I have to sew down the stash a bit first.  Working hard on that now.

I'll post something quilty as soon as Amazon sends that new camera!

Wow!  This IS a friendly group!  Thank you all for the warm welcome.  I'll be joining the 2014 mystery which begins tomorrow ... very eager to get going. I have already picked out my fabrics, and think I'll actually do this in two colorways to get rid of stash.

Last week was spent organizing my stash by color and pulling out anything under a quarter-yard.  Those scraps were added to others and cut up into Joan Ford's Scrap Therapy plan sizes. I have one more tub of scraps to deal with toward that end.

But at least my stash was organized enough to pull colors for the 2014 Mystery. I have many focus fabrics that need to GO!  One set for the mystery is similar to the main CT sample, and the other is a girly, flowery fabric and I've selected solids to complement that.

I really like the idea that the mystery is only three parts long, which means I SHOULD have two complete quilts in short order.

Welcome Kim!  So glad you found us.  I joined the grandma's club 4 years ago now and I wouldn't trade it for the world!  I'm looking forward to seeing your quilts and projects as well as getting to know you better!

Welcome!  And welcome to the grandma club as well!  I've been a member on here for some time, but just joined the grandma club myself 4 months ago.  It is WONDERFUL!

Welcome Kim! Congrats on the grandbaby!  Can't wait to see pictures when he/she is born!

C.T is great!  Always something on my wish list from them. 

Enjoy your day!

Hello Kim, you will love it here, I know I do.  Do you know the gender of that Grandbaby yet?  Looking forward to baby and baby quilt pictures!

Welcome. I have been here for 4 years and my stash is predominantly from CT. I drool all over my keyboard when a new line comes out. Enjoy the new little one and the blog. Where are you from, by the way? I am in Ontario, Canada. That is the ON after my name. Some of us do that to alert potential new quilting friends! Many people here have met up in person and there is even a group for that!
