Zoe - 21 fabrics? in mostly pinks? WOW! I like the looks of bargello quilts, mostly, but I've never wanted to make…"
"Chris - I like the snowmen, but I still like the Santa best! Have fun with the Blossoms quilt - it looks just like spring.
Zoe - that bargello is going to be luscious! Hope you have enough pinks left for the pillowcase. The…"
"Momma Duck - I am declaring the Gemstone Wedding Star quilt to be done for this year. The top is pieced, the backing is made, the binding fabric is with it, but not yet cut since it's on the bias. I am not spending time quilting it…"
"Liz - that's a beautiful block. What quilt along is it?
Riana - I can't wait to see GG's quilt all put together. The teapot is still my favorite block.

"Yeah, I'm easily distracted by a new pattern, but I mostly just save the pattern for a future need, I don't start making it right away.
Riana - glad the eye trials are over.
Linda - hoping your cataract surgery happens soon! I know…"
"Gail, the wedding ring quilt I'm making is a Star Wedding Ring quilt - a paper pieced pattern from Judy Niemeyer. It's probably the only wedding ring quilt I'll ever make, and it's one of my PHD projects. I'm currently…"
"Riana - stay safe in the hospital, and here's to good results from your assessment.

Had to get creative with the backing…"
Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
Mother and grandmother, manager at Olive Garden, sewer, knitter, crocheter and quilter. Learning to free motion quilt now. Working on a Judy Neimeyer Mariner's Compass quilt (that I probably will not quilt myself) and a Bali Jewels quilt that I am going to quilt myself.
How many quilts have you made?
8? 9? 10? I've lost track.
Do you want to make quilts, or simply enjoy them?
I am making quilts, and I'm enjoying seeing pictures of other quilter's quilts.
