A new project on the Horizon
I celebrated my 50th Birthday last Saturday. My sisters gave me a gift certificate for Quilter's Corner (our local quilt shop) I love this store! They carry such beautiful fabrics and Susan, the store owner and her cohort Christine are madly talented! (they have a book coming out in April with the most Awesome bed size quilt projects) Anyway... this is the fabulous FQ bundle I purchased with my birthday certificate! It is called Penelope by Holly Holderman for Lakehouse. Because I have black & white toile draperies in my bedroom - I thought this French inspired fabric collection would make a fabulous matching quilt. I decided to go with the pattern Hot Cross after falling in love with my best friend Sue's quilt found HERE on her blog. (it's GORGEOUS)
With all the BOM projects I am working on - it will be nice to complete a simple yet elegant full size quilt in a fairly short period of time.
My name is Doreen aka Aunt Reen.
I've been a passionate quilter for 30+ years.
I love all aspects of quilting and find great joy in teaching and in learning from other Quilters. I am especially fond of sewing small scale quilt blocks and also enjoy applique'.
