Greetings from a newbie…
Greetings everyone from another newbie. I have been watching the block lotto for sometime now and was very sad that I didn’t discover it in time to participate in the wonky house month (I love quilts with houses on them). I decided to join in this month because I love the scrappy way the blocks look when placed next to each other. I LOVE LOVE LOVE scrappy quilts too!
I made three square in a square blocks. I used 30s fabric in the main block on the two blocks below.
I used batiks (I love batiks) in the main 8″ block below.
I share a blog with some family members at Daughters of Dorinda. We’ve spent the past two years re-creating a quilt made and designed by my Great Great Great Great Grandmother Dorinda. You can check it out on my blog.
I have been quilting heavily for over 16 years, but made my first one in junior high school. I am comfortable with all types of techniques, I hand quilt, I machine quilt on my Bernina, but mostly I LOVE to design quilts. I like traditional quilts but am easing into some art quilting. I love all colors but especially those in the autumn color wheel and batiks.
Thanks for letting me join!
