A stainglass lighthouse



This is my latest quilt project. It was created with a pattern from a quilting book that my parents gave me for Christmas and material that my grandmother had. I learned a few things about quilting with small pieces from this project. Apparently pieces should be cut just a bit larger so that you can cover the seams easily. The quilt looks okay and Brian really likes it. We were going to put in on the wall above our fish tank in the living room but now it hangs in the master bathroom instead. I haven't chosen my next quilt idea yet but it won't be long before I have a new project to keep my hands busy.

That's cool! What's your favorite quilting style? Applique, piecing,etc.

I haven't tried applique yet but piecing is difficult. I think I'll stick with block quilting for now.

I like that quilt. You are pretty talented with quilting to be able to make something like that.
