Current Project, Selvage Quilt

I have worked all day today on my current project, a selvage quilt. 

First a look at the blocks before trimming.

And then trimmed and sewn together.

These blocks will form the border.  The center of the quilt will have the spider web blocks, that begin like this,

And finally will look something like this,

I have three more star blocks to make on the spider web portion of the quilt and 6 more blocks for the border, more progress to show later in the week I hope.  Also working on creating a proper header for the blog, all in good time I have found as it takes time and patience to figure out how to work all the bells and whistles in this blog world.  Have a great week.

First Post!!

This first post is somewhat intimidating, so I'm just going to jump in quickly!  I thought I'd show one of my quilts made for my daughter in her favorite colors pink and green and also used as the background picture on this new blog.  It was one of the first quilts I made from my own design. 

A close up:

And from further away:

Stars and flying geese..... of course.  The border on this quilt really pops although it is kind of hard to see with this photo and the quilting is fantastic.  It was quilted by Margaret Carroll with much thought and creativity.  She even quilted my daughter's name to add a personal touch.

Now I'm going to press that "Publish Post" button for the first time.  Yikes.

Have a great week.
