Any day spent quilting is a great day! I hope my posts and pics inspire my readers to spend as much time as possible producing the works of art that feed our need to create!
Welcome to my blog. I was inspired by the book, "Blogging for Bliss" by Tara Frey.

Tennessee Waltz is my new Favorite Pattern
I love this pattern! I saw it in a magazine a few months ago, and thought, "I need to make one of those." As is my usual way, I got distracted with other projects and things that needed to get done. Now in the past month, I have had two customers bring me these beautiful quilts to quilt for them. They have me chomping at the bit to make one of my own! I love this particular use of a light, multi-colored batik as the background. This simple two block quilt is just a snowball block alternating with a 54 40 or Fight block. The easiest way to make it, I assume would be to use Eleanor Burns' Tennessee Waltz book. Eleanor's books are like "Quilting for Dummies" and I love them. Of all the seemingly thousands of designers out there, I feel like Eleanor makes the best patterns. They are so easy to follow, and have the quickest possible methods. This is definitely on my "to do" list!
