Organized Quilting? We'll See ....

I am about to embark on a new adventure - something I have very little experience with. I am going to make a quilt - one that I fell in love with after seeing it in a quilting magazine about two months ago. The pattern is called Dandelion Wishes and here is the finished product.



Isn't it just beautiful? I love the subtle faded colors. The woman who designed this quilt has a wonderful blog called Fig Tree Quilts. Check out pictures of her gorgeous home and other beautiful quilts she's created.

I have signed up for a quilting class which begins in about two weeks so I can get some basic instruction on cutting the pieces and machine piecing them together. I will post updates here on my organizing blog on how things are going.

I am hopeful that I can be organized enough to add quilting to my list of hobbies. Let's see how I do. Wish me luck!

Wendy..love your new blog, except for the part about having too many dishes! IMHO you can never be too rich or too thin or have too many dishes :-) Have fun with the quilt.

Hi Pam. Thanks for your comment. I guess when you've had to pack and unpack all those dishes over and over then yes, you can have too many. But you should keep the ones you love, enjoy and most importantly, use.
