please allow me to introduce myself

Well, I guess I will give blogging a try. I enjoy the inspiration I get from reading other bloggers and so maybe my quilting adventures will be interesting too. Please bear with me as I get my bearings in the blogging universe. 

Also, quilting is a new passion for me. I also knit all the time. I am sure that knitting projects will find there way here too. 

Oh, and about me. I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with my family and pets. When I am not working at my busy, demanding, stressful, fulfilling, exciting, (insert adjective here) day job, I try to fit as much quilting time in as I can. I also have to fit in time with my kids, exercise, volunteer work, gardening, shopping, renovations, and whatever life throws our way, so the quilting time is variable. However, I am loving the quilting I am able to do and maybe sharing it will make it even more fun.

Recently I made a quilt for one of my sons. He wanted a red quilt, so I made him City Tracks which is a pattern by Cherry House in her City Quilts book. Here is a close up, I will share more about this quilt later, and by then I will figure out how to post a link to this excellent book.


best,

Leanne

  3. Hi! I'm liking the look of that quilt... I've been looking at that City Quilts book (well, not looking thru it, just looking at the cover) and wondering if I should get it. Would you recommend it?

  4. Hi! Welcome to the world of blogging! I stopped by after seeing your beautiful blocks in the Blogger's Block-a-palooza Flickr pool. Are you using a line of fabrics or pulling from your stash? The colors are beautiful!
