I recently joined my local quilt guild (thanks Carolyn for the inspiration). I am really excited about this new venture. The monthly meetings are keeping me inspired and motivated to continue quilting. I know the basics of quilting but would really like to start learning some new techniques. I have always made my quilts by getting ideas from other quilts and then just cutting up my fabric and sewing with no real plan or even thought about what size it would end up. I think its time for me to make a "real" quilt.
In my big shopping spree I wrote about in my last post I bought all the fabric I needed to make this quilt. I love all the solid colors and I am throwing in a few Kaffe Fassett shot cottons to add a little texture. I am currently in the middle of cutting up all the strips. I'll show photos of my progress here soon.
