OK, so I've drooled over Bonnie's web page and blog for months now, and enjoyed Tonya's blog and even had something to say about pearle cotton and quilting (I've tried crochet cotton and swear by it) and debated and debated putting up my own quilt blog.
I'll tell you all right now - I am not a writer! But I love playing with computers (to a point) and love, love, love quilting!
I've been trying to quilt more quilts myself on just my home machine. Lap size or smaller I've gotten pretty good at. Larger ones - that is tougher so depends on how fancy I want it!
I have quilted some by hand, and this whole thing got started because I told Tonya about a quilt I hand quilted but outlined the applique with black crochet cotton! So here it is (if I can figure out how to post the picture)! Guess I got it posted. Jumped to the top - so I'm not sure if there is another way to put it in the middle?
Anyway, I love how the black around the applique sets it off! I also used crochet cotton in the flowers and on the border, but you can't see that in this picture.
I'll keep this short - want to try it all out first.
