First Post

This is my first post on my blog. (The second post on any blog!) However, we all start somewhere!

I love to stitch - mostly patchwork and quilting - and increasingly find I want to try new ideas. I don't want to be stuck in a creative rut. So hopefully I will share some of my ideas and projects with anyone out there who might be interested.

To start with, here's a photo of a sampler quilt I completed last summer.
It was a challenge set by one of the members of a quilt group I belong to; to make a sampler quilt called 'Back to Basics', using 12 basic blocks - 4 Patch, 9 Patch etc. Within those categories, we could choose whatever design we liked, and this is the result.

(Can't turn the photo round - turn your head to the right!)
This one went together easily, so I made another, larger one, which I have nearly finished, and I'll post a picture of that one in a few weeks.
