And so it begins...

Welcome! I am starting a new phase in my life - calling myself a quilter! - and am so glad you are along for the ride. 

The picture depicts the aftermath of a big sewing debacle. Last night, I was staring at my beautifully sewn quilt top, admiring the pretty scrappy colors, how pretty they are as they blend and complement one another, when it hit me that I had pieced the blocks together incorrectly. Oh, I cannot tell you how sick to my stomach I was while seam ripping my lovely quilt top apart. 

Before hitting rock bottom, crawling under the table and crying, I decided to go to bed and face the mess in the morning, which is what this picture shows I found on my dining room table - a quilting crime scene of massacred fabric and thread.

So I don't leave you on a down note, everything is put back together now, and I'm working on piecing the trim. My goal is to finish the top this week and quilt it this weekend.  

A quilter's journey.
