I'm a little fish in a BIG pond....

In the two days I have started this blog, I have found it to be.............interesting?


I am sure of a few things......

 

I must learn more about how to post photos.

 

I need to learn more of the "ins and outs" concerning posting links.

 

I am NOT as tech savvy as I once had thought?!?!?!?!

 

So, here is one of the real reasons I started this blog.......Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, Easy Street!



 
 
 

I admit I have only been "serious"ly quilting for about 2 years now, and this is my very first mystery quilt to ever participate in.  I also have to admit I have been lurking on quilt blogs and have enjoyed seeing other's work for a VERY long time now, and am excited to have created my own quilting blog.  We will see how it goes?  

 

I decided to go with a patriotic color scheme as I will be donating this quilt to Quilts of Valor via alyciaquilts.blogspot.com



Here are my 4 patches ready to go! 
 
Here are those perky geese, also ready to go!  I had never used Bonnie's recommended method for making flying geese with the EZ Angle Ruler, and EZ Angle Companion ruler, but, I may be sold!

And before you all think I wasn't completely caught up.....here are the rectangles!

It was Col. Mustard in the lavatory with the candle stick! 
It's a MYSTERY! BWAHAHAHAHA!
 
Thanks for your encouragement!
Kevin the Quilter

  11. Good for you, Mr. Kevin! I too, started blogging after being so inspired through the sharing ways of fellow quilters online. I wanted to participate in an online swap 3 years ago, and I'm still here having fun. Keep up the good work, I do like your colors.

  12. I do love yellow anything! I, too, started a blog because I knew Bonnie's new mystery was coming up. I figure if I make things all the time, I should start talking about them to people who may be interested! I still need to get on to the rectangles. Maybe when I'm having a breakdown from all the squaring up if my flying geese. Precision is not my forté. Good luck to you!

  13. Great job on the blog...I had problems with blogger. I have a typepad travel blog but I wanted one strictly for quilting. It does get easier. Key factor for photo uploads...size of photo. Too big and it won't load. Too small and no one can see it, lol. Happy blogging. And, give those BT's scratches behind their ears.

  17. I'm new to the blogging thing too. Started mine just to participate in the Linky Party!

    I love the mustards! Makes me want a hot dog though. I've been collecting mustard/cheddars, along with deep reds and burgundys for a while now for a quilt called "Wine and Cheese". Now that's good eatin'! :) Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see how your quilt comes together!
