That's right, it is my hop day on the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop.
If you are new to my blog, thank you for stopping by.
If you have been here before, I hope you enjoy learning a little
bit more about me. I've included a few things
I've worked on and a tutorial starting at the end of the post.
My name is Wendi and I live in California. My husband and I have
three grown daughters and three grandchildren. I enjoy quilting, knitting and creating things.
I find it hard not to have something in my hands to do.
These are a few of things I've enjoyed making.
Question and Answer Section
Quilting - I've been quilting for about 20 years. I love the geometry and the precision. I still have so much to learn, especially in the free motion quilting area. I haven't been able to master those uneven tension issues. I love both tradition and modern designs. Even though I have been quilting for a long time, none of my quilts reside in my home. I have a goal to finish a couple for our home within the next year.
Favorite quilt techniques - I love to applique. It's portable and relaxing.
Favorite quilting tips - Cut as precisely as you can and chain piece when possible.
Fabric wish list - No specific fabric line right now, but my fabric stash is lacking in grays.
Favorite craft or quilting book - I love books. Right now I am learning to knit socks, and I find
Toe-Up 2-at-a Time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes to be very helpful. I don't have a favorite quilting book right now.
Binding by hand or machine - Hand. Always. I find it relaxing.
Favorite TV show when stitching - Big Bang Theory or a chick flick.
Before heading to the tutorial, I want to say thanks for stopping by my blog.
I hope you'll stop by again real soon.
Don't forget to head over and say hello to
my blog hop partner, Kelly of Live. Love. Create.
On to the tutorial
My tutorial for a chevron quilt turned out to be two parts.
Part one is in the post below and part two will post on Saturday.
