It's Bloggers' Quilt Festival time again and I would like to welcome you to my blog if you are not a regular reader. My blog is mainly eye candy of quilts that my clients bring to me to longarm quilt plus I manage to find time to make a few of my own. This time I thought I would go back in time and share with you a quilt I did in 2004. Long before I purchase my longarm I spent a lot of quality time with my Janome 6500 and even wore out a few part on the machine and me! Hence the purchase of the longarm.
This is Celtic applique wall hanging from the book Celtic Quilts by Beth Ann Williams. I was addicted to Celtic applique at that time and made quite a few wall hangings using this technique. Then I was asked to teach this method at our local fabric shop, my first time teaching! I couldn't believe I said yes, the thought of teaching a class scared me I too death but I was so glad I did it and I gained so much confidence through that experience.
I think I would quilt this quilt a bit differently now, like quilt a design in the borders, can't imagine leaving them unquilted now :) But that is part of growing as a quilter, learning new skills and approaching each quilt with those new found ideas.
That's also what I love about quilting, the design possibilities are endless. There is so many techniques and designs to try and I want to try them ALL!!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the festival!
