This is the quilt I made from the 12 blocks of the month. Each one is a basket that is appliqued. For a first time appliquer, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Now I'm going to do the quilting. That should take a while. Just wanted to share.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
