I have always dreamt of being a quilter...telling my story with vibrant patches of fabric. Alas, I always fail. Every quilt I have attempted has turned into a disastrous pile of scraps. I covet the beautiful quilts that inhabit the blogosphere.. their creators live on in a mythical realm to me...they are Quilters. I am going to lay out a challenge to myself, by the end of 2010 I will join these fabled creatures and become a quilter. I will complete at least one quilt this year, and I will document this project here in my little corner. I believe I found an ally in my journey today. I unexpectedly discovered a gem of a quilt shop. Upon entering the shop I was greeted by 12 smiling faces. Thursdays it seems is open sew day, the shop was alive with the sounds of art in motion. It was crammed full of humming sewing machines and fellow fiber enthusiasts. I think my heart nearly exploded with excitement...I had found an honest to goodness sewing circle. I was asked to join with open arms and look forward to doing so next week. These women house decades of experience, and I'm sure that my quilt will come to fruition with their assistance. The fun is just getting started here so please check back often to see who wins in "The Battle of the Quilts".
