Quilts Galore

This November my loving husband got me a sewing machine for my birthday. I was ecstatic since it was a  complete surprise and also because I had asked for one!  Since then I have been slowly learning how to sew with lots of help from my mother-in-law Pam. During winter break and earlier this spring (when I was not so busy with school) I sewed a lot! I made my first quilt, softie tomatoes and strawberries, 2 pillowcases dresses, a pillow cover, bibs, a blanket, and 2 table runners. 

But alas my steam puttered out as well as my time and I had to put other projects on hold. But now since I am no longer in school- and hopefully will never have to go back again-I have the time and money to start again in earnest :) So in the past week I have finished 2 quilts and have sent them off to be machine quilted. I am quite happy with them and will post finished pictures when I get them back. Now I have two new oliver and s patterns beckoning me and a log cabin quilt class in June!
