Welcome to all the new visitors here for the
Grow Your Blog Party!!!
I'm so glad you have found your way to my little corner of blogland. I hope that you will look around and get to know me a little while you are here!
Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is Patricia and I am a quilter. I started sewing before I started to school and haven't stopped yet. Quilting caught my attention in the mid 70s. I took my first class in 1979 and haven't stopped yet. I began teaching quilting in the early 90s and opened a quilt shop in 1996. Before I closed the shop in 2002 I had begun 'stand up' quilting. I own a longarm quilting machine and enjoy quilting the tops that I have made as well as doing a little quilting for friends.
If you want to see some of the quilts I have made over the years there are a few under the Finished Quilts Tab at the top of the blog. This is not by any means ALL the quilts I have made. There are more scattered throughout the blog posts as well as pictures of many in process.
|My Favorite Quilt|
Blogging is my way of reaching out to the quilters around the world. I try to share some of the knowledge I have learned over the years. I also love taking pictures and reading. This year I have joined a couple of reading challenges. You can find out more about them by clicking the tab at the top of the blog or here (Reading Challenges). I am also trying to share a photo each week to fit a theme for the 52 Photos Project. You may have noticed I started my post with a quotation. This is something I try to do on each post. I love quotes and make an effort to find one that relates to something I have to say in my post. I guess you could say that is a personal challenge for me.
Now would you like the chance to win a little gift for visiting my blog? I tried to come up with something that would be nice for quilters or non-quilters. I found this nice little pewter key ring. It has a basket quilt block on it but I think that many people like baskets and almost everyone needs a key ring.
