This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

I have decided to enter this quilt that I first blogged about here. This quilt was a turning point for me in how I approach quilt making and it taught me a lot about where my strengths lie and about the type of quilter I want to be. It was also the first quilt that I basted using the "plank" method of Susan Schamber which has made my quilting life a lot easier.
So that's my offering called 21 Flowers.
Hope you like it!
Thanks to Amy for organising this wonderful event.

Well, it's done. Has been for a couple of weeks. Just haven't been able to get my head around the blogging thing for a while. You know how it is.
It is far from perfect, but I am strangely pleased with it, even though the colours are way out of trend now.
It is the amount of stitching that I have but into it that pleases me and I feel that I have turned a corner in which direction my quilt making is going to take.(And when I say quilt making, I mean quilts that are made for a functional use, not "art" quilting. That is a whole other story.)
Anyway there are more photos here than you need to see I am sure, but it's nice to still get out into the garden.
