Something new and different - quilting

Lately I have been finding myself drawn to the art of quilting. I find this art beautiful and interesting. I have found a friend who has willing to teach the fine art of hand quilting. I am wicked exciting. I had my fist lesson this past sunday. My sewing has already gone from bad to pretty good (or at least I think). I am loving the fact that I can take pieces with me to work on anywhere. It is fantastic!
As you can see from the above photo all notes and books and fabric that we started with. That pile of wonderful bright wonderful bali print fabric was a gift from my son for my birthday awhile ago. He already has great taste.
I chose a simple nine patch pattern to start with, using the amazing fabrics that Quinn gave me and some white muslin. I think that my first quilt will be great.
Keep reading as I keep you updated on my quilt and how I will integrate everything together.
