Angela made me do it! Our beautiful, talented Angela over at Third Time's A Charm posted an entry about a quilt along. I thought "hey that looks like fun, maybe I'll join in". So I did. After many many MANY emails with Angela, who is a VERY patient woman by the way, we decided that the quilt in the picture above would be easy for me to do. I picked different colors and she gave me a list of things I'm going to need. She is also sending me a few things, as well as the fabric and directions. She has faith in me, I sure I hope I don't let her down. I tried to convince her to move to Oregon, but she didn't take the offer. Although, I think it'll be easier on her if she does move here. I can't imagine it being easy to teach someone how to quilt through email.
So, here we go. I'm going to do my best to NOT drive Angela crazy while attempting to quilt. This should be interesting to say the least, I don't sew. I can sew hols in my husband's socks and I've been known to patch a hole in a pair of jeans, but I've never actually sewed something worthwhile. If you're interested, go to Angela's blog. She has all the supplies you will need listed there. Please for the love of Goddess and everything that is holy, if you can sew and have time, do the quilt along. It can't just be me! I know my quilt won't look at beautiful as hers and If I'm the only one then she will be so ashamed! No really though, if you have time, you should do it. I'll post pictures when mine is done and ya'll can laugh at point at it. It'll be A LOT of fun!
Head on over to Mel's and see what the rest of the class is showing.
P.S. Last week I showed some coffee mugs that pictured animals that were uhhhh.."getting to know each other". mrsmoore08 sent me a link to look up the mugs. I checked out the website and they didn't have the mugs. BUT I did find the company that sells them and they aren't too expensive. If any of you are interested, here's the link.
