Ten Years of Quilting.
Since it's like an anniversary I have decided to show part of what I have been doing in the ten years since I retired. That's not including the scarves, pillows, soft toys, aprons and silkscreen pictures I also created.
Only the quilts.
Some have gone to better homes, some I still own. And just so everybody knows, even if I have learnt a lot about the art of quilting, having fun has been number one reason for making quilts.
For about a year I just made quilts learning from books I had bought.
However, when a friend recommended Birmingham Quilters Guild I began learning a whole new set of skills. The guild is still the place I go to learn.
I was an amateur then, and I am still an amateur; the word has it's roots in love. I am proud of the designs of those first quilts, they were simple, but they were my own designs.
