Hello, Everyone! I have taken the plunge into blogland. I have been procrastinating on starting a blog. After all, what do I have to say that hasn't been said? Why would someone want to read what I have to say? Hopefully some of you will come back often and follow my quilting journey. At the very least, I will have documentation of that journey.
I plan to share with you my work as I go along, quilts I'm planning and, most important, quilts I've finished. I've been quilting for many years, but my finished quilts are relatively small in number compared to the quilt tops I've completed. (When -- not if, but when -- I get my longarm machine, I will have a good supply of samples to work on for practice!) I'll also share with you some tips and maybe have some treats along the way.
I recently entered a quilt I had designed in the McCall's Design Star contest. I went as far as the second challenge round. Alas, I did not make it to the third and final challenge quilt. But that experience sparked my desire to do more quilt designing, perhaps even publishing/selling my patterns. You can read a bit more about the McCall's Design Star experience here -- http://www.mccallsquilting.com/mccallsquilting/articles/Quilt_Design_Star_2012_Finalist_Christa_Hitchcock
Stay tuned for a couple of blog hops I plan to participate in. My goal for my next post is to figure out how to add a photo and how to add buttons for the blog hops. Should be fun!
