When we first moved to England, the Relief Society had a quilt group going. They offered a beginning quilting class. I learned to sew in Uni, and had always wanted to learn to quilt. My SIL made Brother 1 a beautiful baby quilt when he was born. She used a long-arm machine and free-motion quilted dragonflies and swirls alternating on the blogs. I was impressed and decided then that I would learn to quilt one day. Well that day came when I found out about this class. We created beautiful blocks using different techniques, and came away with a sampler quilt. During this time I scoured the blogosphere and fell in love with the array of quilt blogs out there. One such blog is The Old Red Barn. She offered a quilt along, and I purchased the fabric. It’s taken me 2 years, but I finally finished the quilt. I AM IN LOVE. I finished it in Wales and it kept me cozy and warm in my bunk, and will continue to do so each night on my bed.
