Let's get started!

June 13, 2018

It's time to get my first blog posted.  I'm so excited to be on this adventure.  I've been quilting since 1983 when my husband and I arrived at his first assignment in the Air Force at Mather AFB in California.  We went on a drive up in the mountains outside of Sacramento to a little town called Folsom and came across this very cute quilt shop.  I went in and was hooked.  I decided that I needed a hobby and what a hobby it has become.  I look back on that time and how we learned the basics of quilting and much of what we learned then is still true today.  The colors I chose then are definitely not the colors I choose to work with now, but then the fabric selection for quilters was not what it is today - which is fabulous!  No two quilts could possibly be the same!  As an example, here is a picture of my VERY first quilt - hand pieced, hand quilted, and yes, a special merit ribbon winner. 

 

 

 

 

 I believe the quilt gods decided I needed my own category, so I won a ribbon for "Best First Quilt".  Have you ever seen that category at a quilt show?? Needless to say I was thrilled.  There was a little envelope pinned to the back with a comment card, and I remember one of the comments said "dog hair may be removed with masking tape". Oops!  The things you learn.  Well I still have a dog, (no not the same one), because I always will, and still love to quilt, because I hope I always can.  

 

So now, after 35 years, I have learned much more about color, and quilting, and even have started some of my own designs.  I have a true sewing room after many, many years sewing on the dining room table and it's heaven.  In this blog I will be showing you a bit of my life on the lake, my dog Cleo (Cleopatra meaning Queen of the House), and my quilting.  Stay tuned, and ENJOY Little Sailor Quilting.
