Twenty Years ago I started quilting. I knew nothing more than how to sew a button onto a piece of clothing. I bought a great beginners book called Quilts, Quilts, Quilts!!!: The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking by Diana McClun and Laura Knowles.
I took the book to The Country Quilter in Somers, New York on October 8, 1993. I poured over the many bolts of beautiful fabrics, observed a class that was going on, and I was hooked.
So I signed up for beginner lessons, bought some fabric, a cutting board, thread and other beginners tools, and began my journey. And a great journey it has been. Later that day I met the man I would eventually marry. He also did a monumental thing that day before he met me, and shaved off a mustache he had for many years.
So to celebrate, my new sponsor, Cuts of Cotton is offering a great bundle of fall fabric as a give-a-way.
In order to enter in the give-a-way, please leave me a comment below, and include what your favorite fabric to work with is, and your favorite color. I will put all names in a hat, and my husband will randomly pick one on Wednesday, October 16. I will post the winner on my blog on Thursday,October 17, by noon, EST. Please include a way I can reach you, in the comments box.
