The learning curve was steep, the physcological block was dense, and the willingness to seek help was buried behind the 'how hard can it be" door. BUT, the skill has finally arrived !!! (Just don't ever say the words "scroll down and hit open" if you expect a response to your comment.)
This quilt is named 'Button-up Buttercup' by FriendFolks. The flowers and centers are raw edged and double fabric so they really fray up. Tell me pinks and browns aren't wonderful together! The 'Button-up' part of the pattern included large buttons in the centers of the flowers, but the quilt looks great without them too. This quilt is not brand-new, BUT it is one of my favorites and has led to several successful classes.
Teacher, quilter, people person! These words describe me. My Grandma Edith was a quilter and I grew up thinking everyone had hand-made comforters and quilts on their beds. My first formal quilting class was in 1972 although I have sewn since I was a girl, making doll clothes and later, my clothes, home dec projects and quilts. After retiring from teaching elementary school, I began to work in quilt shops and teach quilting classes.
Teaching, quilting and people are true joys in my life. What could be better than to spend my time combining all three!
