Greetings! My name is Tanya and I have been quilting for nearly 20 years. My blog is dedicated to quilting. I only started blogging last June and have really become inspired by other quilting blogs. Since I have quilted for so long, I have tried lots of different techniques and my tastes have certainly evolved.
I confess that I have not finished my first quilt. It is a UFO (gasp, a quilter with a UFO, shocking!) and can be found in a tub in my garage. Every time I look at it, I am horrified by my terrible piecing skills, the atrocious colors, and my ridiculous attempt at beginning to hand quilt it...I fear it is destined to always be a UFO!
I like country and primitive quilts. The big, chunky stitches of quilting and embroidering with perle cotton and delicious wool felt are my favorite things to do as far as handwork. Handwork is definitely my therapy! This is a primitive flower quilt. I used wool felt and appliqued it onto flannel using perle cotton.
Lately, I have become restless with country and primitive quilts which was kind of what drove me to the quilting blog world. I found Lori Holt's blog beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com in June and immediately started her row along project. I made this in a couple of weeks, but have yet to finish it because I can't make a decision about the borders. Do these kinds of dilemmas stump anyone else besides me? And then these same uncertainties prevent you from finishing a project....
I find myself drawn to more modern quilts and fabrics. I like the bright colors and how the gorgeous fabric is the predominate feature in the quilt.
To celebrate this Grow Your blog event, I am offering this kit that has been in my stash for too many years to count. I have enough Christmas quilts for my home and classroom, I want to pass it on to someone who will make it! It is 22"x 22" and includes the fabrics, batting, buttons, and embroidery floss. You do not need to follow my blog to enter (I am not even sure how to arrange all the followers stuff), if you could just leave me a comment telling me what your favorite type of quilting is. I will draw for a winner on February 15th and will figure out how to ship it anywhere...Good luck and I can't wait to meet some new, talented bloggers!
