My daughter had a quilting project in art class. Actually, it was a painting project that used quilt blocks. They were to pick 4 quilt blocks and place them in the order the teacher wanted. The teacher also had rules about the colors and tints. They were supposed to pick 3 colors and 1 tint. She obviously hadn't quilted before. My daughter broke the rules anyways and made tints of 2 of the colors. I think she knew instinctively that the colors would blend too closely together. She is the real artist in the family. This project was done in December so she thought she would be able to give it to me for Christmas. It was chosen to be displayed in the main hallway and stayed at school. Friday she got in the the car after school and said "Merry Christmas!" and gave it to me. I love it and pinned it up this weekend in my quilting space. I know it's going to call to me to make it into a fabric quilt one day.

Hi! I'm Michelle. I live in a gambrel roofed house, which looks like a barn, with my husband, two kids, one cat, six dogs and a small flock of chickens. I've been quilting in my free time for over 10 years. I love quilting and sewing and I'm starting to embrace all aspects of it. I plan on completing some Works In Progress. I've also started buying thrift shop clothes and making my own. I'm just a beginner at clothes sewing so those may be long posts as I try to get my thoughts down on that. Thanks for stopping by ^_^
