My first post!!! Quilting away!

I'm trying this and hoping someone notices!! I'm a new empty nester and trying to keep busy so as not to miss the boys too much (one left for London and one left for college). I've only been quilting for a few years but have been sewing for many, many years. I've found I love quilting so much more then making clothing for myself! The squares here on my blog are the blocks I'm working on for my mom. She chose the colors for her guest room. I love the bold purples. It is a variation of X-Blocks. So fun and interesting. The header is one way to put the blocks together and this is another with one of the border options to the left and one to the bottom ... I am leaning toward the border on the left ... what do you think? I'm not going to post a lot today as this is just my start and I'm just learning ... plus have to see if anyone notices me!!! Have a great week everyone!


  1. Welcome. I've had a personal blog out there for years on my grandbabies and I just started my quilting blog a few months ago. It can keep you busy

  2. Congratulations on your new blog. What a fabulous start! I'm impressed! :D

  3. Beautiful! I do love these colors! I've not made an "X" block quilt yet, but it is definitely on my "to do" list!
