My very first quilt!

Sorry I can't make the picture bigger or clearer. This quilt is for my youngest daughter Kaci. I started it many years ago and worked on it for quite a while. We found a kit of precut triangles that she liked the colors but not the pattern they had it in. Was sorta supposed to be a pinwheel. So I sewed all the triangles together and then made a kinda around the world, though at the time I had no clue that was what it was called lol. There are about 400 squares in this quilt made up of triangles. I hand quilted hearts in each of those blocks. It seemed like it took forever lol. I learned alot from doing this quilt though. And she really likes it so it was worth all the problems of putting those triangles together.

Just remember if my first quilt could be made from all triangles, you can do anything if you try !

Baltimore Bird

This is a big wall hanging that I did at Quilt Campus as a Let's Applique. It is one of my favorites!
I love the bird! I hand appliqued and hand quilted it. I did a diagonal line across the center piece with the applique and then did a heart stencil in the blue borders.

My First Let's Applique project

 This was the first project I did with Quilt Campus as a Let's Applique project.
It was a quick easy project and isn't it cute?
I used all scraps which is great!

A great place to visit online

If you are ever are looking for a wonderful quilting site to visit, hop on over to There is alot going on there. I am an op there in the live chat room. It is a safe fun place for chatting about quilting and there are many fun projects going on. There is Bingo, where you actually win fat quarters, Let's Applique, where you get free fun patterns and help with learning to applique, or just encouragement when you need it. Around November we do Bits and Pieces, that is where you send in pictures and updates of UFO's you have hanging around, earn points and possibly prizes. This month Quilt Campus is 2 years old! We are having a birthday party in the chat room. Click on over and read all about it. There will be prizes, and lots of fun. We chat about all kinds of things. When ever you are in the chat room (there is lots going on at the website, not just chatting) and see someone with an @ in front of their name, that indicates that an op is on duty. We keep the chat room safe from people who don't belong there. The room is rated G and we watch for people who would come in and disturb our chatters.

There is also quilt classes going on through the channel with nationally known teachers. Check it out and let me know how you like it.

I will be posting some pictures of finished projects I did through the chat room and also some I have done on my own.
