Has anyone started a blog and not begun with some sort of statement about being a newby to the blog world? I am not sure what to expect from this or even what "theme" it will have. I expect these things take on a mind of their own once they get going. My traditional thinking is that blogs are self serving and I suppose I am still of that mind set. But recently I have been following a couple of blogs that have made me feel like I made a new friend, even though I don't comment much on the posts. So I guess that is what I hope, to reach someone who is lonely and maybe make a "cyber-friend" along the way.
The first thing I am wanting to share is the quilt block I finished today. This one is for a quilt block of the month (qbom) at a local shop. I have chosen to piece these by hand. Why would someone do that when she owns a perfectly good sewing machine, you ask? I am a relatively new quilter and am just trying a different technique. So far I have 11 of these blocks done. I am not crazy about the actual finished quilt with a large applique in the middle, so will do something different with these. I am telling myself that they will not become orphans and not make it into a quilt.
