I am starting this blog to write about and discus the joys and challenges of a beginner quilter. As of now I am pretty much self taught with the exception of a few instructions from Jan at Byrd's Nest Quilt Shop. Her UFO Tuesdays are a lot of fun. I haven't been able to go to them for the last few months because my sister, Donna and I have set up a booth at the Daytona Flea Market which takes up three days a week. Recently we have gotten some special orders which take even more free time away.

I also sell my items on Etsy, Ebay and Bonanza. I have found the Ebay buyers harder to please as they expect perfection., even with the words, "expect imperfections that is what makes hand made quilts unique" in the description. Can anyone really sew a perfectly straight line?

My sister hand quilts and has done so for 40 years. I am planning to try my hand at this when we are through with Christmas orders.
