Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

My Quilting Journey - Part 4 - Bells and Baubles
The pattern for this one came from AP&Q Vol 18 No. 6. A design by Joan Watter. I started the top in October/November 2009 with a loose plan to have it finished for Christmas that year but in my usual style it didn't get completely finished until January 2011. I made this a little smaller than the original because I thought it was big enough and didn't need another border. I found some cute little tree light beads at the Quilt Show and strung together other beads to make the garlands. It finally went up on the wall this Christmas! I'm happy with the way it turned out though!
