Sharing my adventures in quilting and my love of applique.

My intro to blogland,,,, Glorious Applique
I discovered blog land by accident last December while browsing the web. My son had just had surgery and we were looking forward to a very quiet Christmas helping him with his recovery. When I stumbled upon the blog Glorious Applique showcasing quilts being made from Kim McLean's wonderful patterns it put a smile on my face and I knew I had to make one. I had never used Kaffe Fassett fabrics before but loved them in this applique setting and I ordered the pattern from the Glorious Color website as well as a fabric starter pack and began this quilt called Flower Pots.
Unfortunately the blog was full and I wasn't able to post my progress but I read it regularily and gained inspiration as I worked on my quilt. Recently the moderator of the blog figured out a way to allow more of us to participate and I have recently began sharing my work. Most of the applique is done but I set it aside for awhile while working on other projects.
My recent posting on the Glorious Applique blog has got me all excited about this quilt and I hope to have it all put together soon, Such happy colors and probably the most fun quilt I have ever worked on. It just makes my sewing room glow. These are just a few of the panels - I'll show you more soon.
