Newest Obsession...

Recently I read the Elm Creek Quilts series and I am now obsessed with quilting! So I went to my best source for all my crafting needs...great grandma!

She gave me a dozen books on quilting. I have made tons of quilt squares and am now working on my first quilt. I decided to make a puff or biscuit quilt for Amelia's birthday. The last two nights I have been cutting squares. I had to cut 120 5 inch squares for the top pieces and 120 4 1/2 inch squares for the bottom pieces. Tonight I have to pin all those squares together, then I will be sewing & stuffing squares. I have less than two weeks to finish the project. Lets all cross our fingers that I have the time to get it done!!

As for ever other project...basically put on hold til I get bored with my current obsession :)

Well that's about it for the moment...write more later.

Quilts?! C'mon Barb, get back to work!

That should be a nice birthday present, though.

I can't quilt at work...so all is safe :)

And the quilt is coming along nicely, thank you very much :)
