Do you remember the project where you took your quilting to a new level...

I have been reminiscing about my beginner projects that were from yesterday years...I started quilting 3 1/2 years ago.  Kaffe Fassett is my first love with the jelly roll as a close second....I am sending the below Kaffe Fassett book to a "beginner" because of the wonderful quilts and how many of them are user friendly to the newcomer...Inside the cover I have attached  the below photo of my wonky version of Kaffe's Cover rays quilt...I still remember the day I bought the fabric with the targets in this quilt and how I looked for over an hour through every bolt of fabric looking for my keys...

Below is the cover qjilt that I patterned my version after...


And the below photo is me turning a leftover photo copy into a love note to whomever enters my office and reads the "fine print"....  Daer Friends, I wanted to send a "HI!" to you!  Love, Em


This mirror is part of my friendly shrine in my office.  I am excited about this photo becasue you can see the wall size map of our field area peeking in the background due to my office not having walls to the ceiling....Can you see the teeny arrow?  that is where we are going to mud bog and do physicals today?  Come along and play with me!!!

Love, Em

Hmmm....Mary Lou was my first quilt VIP crush..and I just finished a three day class with her, another uncanny timing. Her Angel book was the first book where the quilts looked FUN and different with less need to perfect, which doesn't come naturally to me. Your second love is the jelly roll...the kind you eat or the fabric package? :) I'm still thinking about Diane Hire.....
