~ To the Attic ~

Well, I made my way back up to the attic yesterday and today... I thought I would start the year with the focused determination of piecing and finishing a lap quilt for my dear mother...She has been hinting for one and she has been sooo patient for about 10 years I have to do it!! Last year I decided to make her a patchwork quilt because I thought that would be the most forgiving of quilts for a mere beginner like myself...Boy was I wrong ~ the small pieces were much harder to align than I had ever imagined and it didn't work out... This year I decided to do a larger block and so's working!!
Geez, I hope I don't jinx myself now...I'm actually getting a little confident because the blocks are turning out the same size!! Playing around with all the colors and fabrics is fun too...As you can see, I'm a hopeless fabric-aholic (note full shelves of fabrics) ... and darn proud of it!! I'll post some more pictures as I move along...and clean my sewing room...wish me luck!! ....
Take Care,
