|a couple of the stitchery quilts that I have received for Sheila|
As for my part of the tour I am to tell you a little about myself and what I like to work on as well as what I am up to at the moment.
Sew here we go.
I am a gal that has loved to sew forever. I remember grabbing mom's scraps and a needle and thread and making some very interesting clothes for my dollies. And that love of fabric has not changed to this day...... my stash can tell you that at a glance.
I do love to try new things and ideas. Last year I help head up a community project with local artists and quilters. A combined effort created a fantastic wall hanging which is hanging in the local seniors home. This project had us all stepping outside of our personal comfort zones but all I could say in the end was WOW! and those who worked on it want to know when we can do this again.
Here is what we came up with.....
As what is my personal style , I could not pin myself down to just one type. I do a little of everything sew I guess I am still developing my style. I have designed some patterns and quilts as well. I even tried entering a contest through McCall's Quilt in 2012. With all the support of bloggers and friends I did make it to the finals and was in the last 10 participating in the professional category in the challenge. Check out their site to see all the quilts and challenges that we competed in.McCall's Quilt Design Challenge 2012 check out the gallery and you can see all the entries on all of the levels
Here are the first and last quilts of mine from that time.

Now for the projects that I am working on at this time.
I am always working on a quilt it seams and this past year or sew I have been working with a friend on quilts for Victoria Quilts Canada, these quilts are for cancer patients check out their site to see what they are more about or if you are in need of a quilt to request for a friend or loved one.
I am also working on hospital gowns for our ladies church group .
On the quilting front I am working on a set of block of the month blocks .
