Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on my quilt.  That is my husband's favourite quilt and it hangs behind the pool table.  Hmmm, just read back on my original post.  I think I got a bit mushy - please excuse me.

Okey-Doh

!. As a quilter , I wish I could make a quilt for every poor child in the world.

2. My favorite part of quilting is the conception, finding a pattern or fabric that just speaks to you.

3. If you saw my stash, you would notice that I am drawn to 1930's colors

4. I find myself drawn to (see above)

5. My favorite colors are reds and blues because they are bright and patriotic.

6. Colors I rarely use are browns and greens because browns are depressing and I have never looked good in green, or wrapped up in it.

7. I challenge myself by trying new challenges, like the Mystery Quilt.

8.My favorite quilt I've made is the very first one. I took a class at the LQS and made a quilt for my newborn Grand, Isabela, who is now 6.

9.Outside my quilting, one wonderful thing about me is, hmmm, my family has always come first in my life.(and I have pretty blue eyes, or so they tell me)

1. As a quilter I wish I could create something magnificent and bring it to fruition.

2. My favorite part of quilting is the anticipation and excitement I get when I have the pattern and all the fabrics picked out.

3. If you saw my stash you  would notice that I know no boundaries. I'm not locked into any one color scheme, style of fabrics, or theme.

4. I find myself drawn to tools and new ideas. I love to try new tools or a different way of doing something. 

5. My favorite colors are: I'm especially fond of purple, magenta and greens. I think they bring to mind beautiful flowers.

6. Grays, Boring!   

7. I challenge myself by taking on difficult patterns to improve my skills.

8. My favorite quilt is the first I ever made. It was king size and took me two years to complete. There were over 1000 cut pieces in it and when I finished it I was so proud. I did it all by hand. I could see better then.LOL

9. One wonderful thing about me is that through all the struggles I had in my youth I made up my mind that I would be a great mother and that my son would always come first (after God). I didn't realize I had accomplished that until I found out  that he had written a paper about me for school as "The person he admired most." Still brings a tear to my eye.

1. As a quilter, I wish I could find more time on my sewing machine.

2. My favorite part of quilting is making beautiful colorful fabric into wonderful patterns and designs.

3. If you saw my stash, you would notice I don't have much fabric on hand. . . yet.

4. I find myself drawn to flowers on the fabrics.

5. My favorite colors are naturals, pinks, reds, oranges, blues, lavenders, yellows, (I could go on and on) because they remind me of nature.Our hills in Kernville are covered with these same colors right now. Spring is here!

6. Colors I rarely use are plain colors because I prefer flowered and patterned fabrics, and plain colors seem to show my mistakes more readily.

7. I challenge myself by learning new techniques and trying harder patterns.

8. My favorite quilt I've made is a Magic Vine quilt from Eleanor Burns' book because it was easy to complete, included appliqued flowers which I love, and brought together great fabric and design.

  9. Outside of quilting, one wonderful thing about me is I make handmade glass beads, many with flowers (are you noticing a theme here?)

Thanks for asking these questions. As a newbie, I am finding this group wonderfully helpful and fun.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
