I am a quilter. It's something I'm a bit proud of too and I find myself mentioning it to people all the time... is that silly of me? I have been a quilter for some years and made a bunch of small different quilts. To hang on the walls of Pale Rose. My interest with quilting began when my mom made a small babyquilt out of my old baby clothes/fabrics. It was a wonderful result apart from the emotional value it held for both her and me & I was eager to try and make one myself.
Which I did years ago and I never stopped making quilts. The first one I made was out of all squares in red and blue. Then I made a Log Cabin & later one with stars. The sky is the limit where quilts are concerned. I have been busy again with fabric these past few weeks. Going through my pile, assorting collors. Dreaming up creations, if you are a quilter too then you probably get the picture ;) Hours of fun just thinking about the process and later gettng your hands onto it, just wonderful.
So I went to the library a while ago, to see if they had some good quilting books and they had this one book called Bargello Quilts. In wich you make quilts with flowing lines, made out of small different sized sqaures and rectangles. It all sounds complicated but is not really. If you make a simple one like I did for a first. I had never tried this method and it was something I longed to do.
