I've been quilting here and there for about 4 years. My grandmother has quilted off and on for years but about 6 years ago she became really interested in quilting again. She was making quilts for each grandchild and asked me what I wanted for my quilt. I told her I wanted to pick out the pattern and the fabric and help her sew it. That's when I got hooked. I chose a tumbling blocks pattern and went online and ordered all kinds of fabrics for our creation. We've finished the top but I am determined to quilt it myself and have yet to make up my mind about how I will do that. Here's a picture of a section of the quilt.
The picture in the background of this blog is a picture of the first quilt I completed. I made it from old clothes. As it happens many of the clothes I used were old boxers. So my family calls it the "Underwear Quilt." I made up the pattern myself then pieced and quilted it on an old Bernina Record 830 that belonged to my mom. I really enjoyed the process and am pretty proud of the outcome!
Hopefully I can share some useful and entertaining information as I blog about my evolution as a quilter. Thanks for checking it out! - Andrew
