It's March, wow!

With our lack of snow this winter it's hard to fathom it's already March! I just hope the rain comes at the right times for farming through the spring and early summer.

I want to try something new, posting a quilt related photo a day. I got this idea from both my daughter Lisa's 365 photo project last year and my friend Sharon. Now obviously I can't make a quilt a day, but I have lots and lots of quilts to choose from. I have an overflowing linen closet of quilts and they are all over my house as well. I usually have between 30-35 on display at any one time. I have been quilting for 23 years and spent a few years being quite prolific. I started out with machine pieced, hand quilted bed quilts and would manage to do a few a year. Then I discovered wallhangings and from there machine quilting and wow I could make a lot more things! I am one of those that calls anything that has a top, batting and backing, and is finished a quilt, no matter the size.

I just randomly went into my files of projects worked that haven't been posted here yet. This quilt top is one I assembled last fall from some swap blocks. I was thrilled with how it came out with the different size leaves. I'm not a fall colors person, but since I decorate for the seasons this will fit well if I ever get it quilted!

How fun that you're gonna show a quilt a day too! I know I'm gonna love seeing your work.
This leaf quilt is beautiful, btw.

Awesome Julie!! It is going to be fun to pop in and see your stuff everyday. It's been fun posting them all year. This first one is great!

I can't wait to see the quilts every day. I've so enjoyed Sharon's quilts every day. I have some quilts - but not nearly enough to begin a quilt a day showing - though I wish I did. I'll have to count my quilts and see what I come up with - but it will be measly compared to you and Sharon.

Good to see you posting again. And fabulous leaf quilt.

Your blog will be like a quilt magazing a day...and if I go back and look at Sharon's I will really be getting my money's worth.

Cute fall quilt, I love the blue in it...like the autum sky!

Good luck! Posting something every day is hard...! But I look forward to seeing the pictures, although I've probably seen all the quilts already anyway :)
