MY FIRST QUILTIE



Hi there,
Trust everyone is well. I'm glad the World Cup is over with.........I'm not a fan of football, I'm more for rugby, I'm fed up to the teeth with football, football, football on the television, even my progs had been taken off !!!!!!!.
As Italy has won the World Cup ( congratulations to them ) all I hear is talk of football, football, football.........................maybe I'm the odd-ball out here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
ah well enough football talk.............................

I've decided to try an online course with LENNA ANDREWS via the JOGGLES website, learning to work with fibers and make quilties which hopefully will turn out to be a nice little book and present for someone. This is the first time I've tried anything like this on such a small scale in fabric, I'm used to making collages and ATCs but this is completely different ...................and such fun too. I would never have dreamed of marrying paper and fabric together or using glue instead of sewing ...

Here are the pictures of my first quiltie that I made today it measures 5" X 5", maybe it has take on a HOT colour scheme as here in Italy it's very hot and sticky.
