My first full size quilt

I am currently working on a Bonnie Scotsman Quilt.  I am making it to cover a sofa bed.  It is approximately 87" x 77".   I have sewn it altogether and pinned it.  I am so happy I have a large DR table.  My husband put in the leaf and the pads and I pinned it on there.  I figured it would be alot better than laying it out and pinning it on the floor...and better for my back...

Joined "The Painted Quilt" Blog

I happened to stumble upon a wonderful blog spot "The Painted Quilt".  Kaaren does beautiful quilts as well as create patterns that she shares.  I just started downloading her BOM of Raggedy Ann and cute.  The second block was just posted so I need to hurry and do my two blocks before the 20th of next month.  I am also working on my first full size quilt ...I will post some pictures of the blocks...
Here is the block I am working on...I need to make 56 of them...

Just started blogging

This blogging is new to me although I have read so many blogs that you would have thought I would have had one by now.  I love to sew, quilt and machine embroider.  I hope to share some of my experiences and ideas on my blog.
