I have always loved to quilt. My favorite type of quilt is a scrappy quilt. I am working on one called a Spiders Web. It is vintage looking and I really like it. This is the trimmings after I have trimmed up the squares. This is foundation piecing and I really like that also.
These are my two piles of strips for the foundation piecing. One is on the floor and the other next to my machine. When I am being creative I make a mess....I mean, if the choice is creative or clean which one would you pick. Well, I 'd pick creative any day. The room is still messy because tomorrow I start to do more squares. This quilt is a wedding quilt and I can't wait til the top is finished and I can take it to the quilter.
Here are the squares stitched together. As you can see they do look very vintage. Don't you just love it!
This is me. I live in Acworth, Ga., just outside and to the north of Atlanta. I was raised in Indiana and Arizona, my two most favorite places to visit. I have a wonderful husband and two grown boys.
I am owned by 5 dogs, Toaster, Cracker, Maggie, Saddie and Crosby . My husband and I want to have a kennel when we grow up. We both love dogs. Never in my life have I owned 5 dogs but now can not imagine living without them. They are a lot of work and expensive to feed, which is why I am always looking for innovative ways to provide good food for them. Right now its on an alternating basis...one eats one day and the next day someone else eats.......lol.....not really but some days we wish. We do feed our dogs homemade food void of all processed dog foods.
I hope this blog with let you know a little more about me and my website , Sapphire Stitches. It is here I will post pictures of projects I made and my customers have made.
