08/17/23: WELCOME FRIENDS! Please excuse the blog dust as we're in the middle of moving, rearranging and updating at the moment 🙂

Welcome to My New Quilting Blog

Greetings fellow quilters and to all who may travel this way!

My name is Sue and I've been a quilter in training since 2016, learning from a dear friend who introduced me to the world of piecing and quilting. Smitten with the many beautiful fabrics and an endless choice in design possibilities, I've gradually continued to grow and learn much about this quilting path.

Over the last few years, I've slowly worked through new quilt projects learning which material choices and techniques work along with which ones to avoid. Recently I've wanted to step up and challenge myself more, leaning towards thoughts of trying my hand at a sampler quilt, but without the blocks becoming too difficult or overwhelming.

Keeping an eye out for the right sampler selection, I came across and picked up a 100 sampler block book, "Harriet's Journey from Elm Creek Quilts" by Jennifer Chiaverini. It has a lovely back story and history behind the original antique quilt from which each of the sampler blocks are taken.

I've read over the pattern book and know I'll love it! After gathering a few materials to get started, I've set up my ever faithful vintage sewing machine to meet the challenge of this sweet sampler quilt.

And so, this is where the new blog and sampler quilt begins. I'm looking forward to meeting new quilty friends and sharing in recreating Harriet's quilt. Thank you for joining me on this journey!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!
