Quilt progress and wardrobe diasters....

So my first attempt at quilting is coming right along! My pattern is sort of a Log Cabin but it's turning into more of a just whatever I happen to come along with in a 12 inch block! I sat down and did my measurements and I have to make 20 blocks. I'm done with 8 now! Only 6 are pictured but it's 8! I'm having a lot of fun with it!
Bless my husband...wonderful, wonderful man, fabulous taste in women....terrible taste in clothing!!! He has however agreed to allow me to turn some of his least tasteful shirst into a quilt for him! Below are examples....I'm sure you will agree the fellow can't dress!
And lastly just cause she's so ADORABLE! My darling gal!

2010 resolution....on it's way to completion!

Ok Ok so it's going to be a REALLY long time before I actually complete it! But I'm teaching myself to sew! As part of my 2010 things I want to do....I want to learn to sew. I have had a sewing machine for greater than 4 years. Thanks to my most marvelous mother in law who purchased it for me when several years ago I expressed interest in learning....I have not used it once until now! And here is the first 12" inch block of what will one day be a log cabin quilt for a very special person who will love this extremely imperfect quilt every bit as much as she loves me......
