My adventure into the world of quilting is getting more and more fun. I found these great tweeples on twitter (people + twitter = tweeples) who share my love of quilting and fabric. Thru the new tweeple friends I found out a lot about quilting and myself as a quilter. For instance I realized that my style leans much more towards modern than traditional. Not to mention seeing tons of pics of quilts and finding a bunch of great quilting blogs. Yes they are out there, but I never went looking before. So to all my tweeples, thank you for turning me into a quilting junkie :)

This week I worked on a lot of different projects. The Spring Quilt-a-long at Above All Fabric started. Here’s a pic of the 4 squares I made for the project so far.
I am totally in love with this fabric line, it's Sunkissed by Sweetwater. Shawna from 1 Choice 4 Quilting hooked me up with a bunch of fabric and even sent some nice goodies to me.

Doing these 4 blocks made me decide that it is time to do a soduku quilt. I am using my Sherbert Pips (thanks Shawna :) ) to make that quilt. As soon as my Hubby finished the soduku I gave him I can begin. I thought it would be fun to make the quilt according to a puzzle he solved, although the man is a whiz with numbers so it won't be challenging for him, just getting him to do it will be the hard part.

I also did 2 more blocks in the Patchwork Squared Modern Quilt-a-long. This is so educational for me. I have done blocks with 9 squares, but not more than they yet. Sewing 36 was more of a challenge than I had thought and great way to practice getting corners just right. If you are a beginner quilter I highly recommend making this type of block. The other block is a rail fence. I like this block so much I am planning on doing one for my Mom. It’s still not too late to join either of these for activities. 

All in all I had a great qulting week. I continue to learn and grow as a somewhat new quilter. I'd love to see your blocks and hear your stories of your qulting adventures. And I promise to have a healthy recipe next week.
