Twenty-One years later.....began a quilt project!

Do I really need to start yet another hobby? Quilting has been calling to me for quite some time. All these beautiful little scraps gathering around, crying, "Don't throw us out!!! We want to become quilts!"

My first two quilts were fun until the customer started hounding me daily inquiring as to the progress. After that, I swore, NEVER AGAIN. Twenty-one years later..... I am doing this for myself, without even thinking of pre-selling, or even selling. This one is for ME. A simple pattern. I am thoroughly enjoying the process. And this go around, I bought the cutting mat, ruler and rotary cutter. The first 5 of 35 blocks are complete. I won't sew the rows together until I have all 35 and can arrange them how I like.
I will get some pictures today of one of the blocks.

My sewing machine is now working over-time and loving it! Dolls, doll clothes and now quilt blocks. My last Brother lasted 18 years and was still going strong, until the fire. I decided to buy the same (or near same) model again 3 years ago. No bells and whistles, nothing fancy.... a "Getter Done" machine, The Brother IS2125I.
