This Sunday I'm very pleased to introduce you to another lovely quilt blogger - Lesly from Pickle Dish!
Now, I found Lesly's blog very early in my blogging days - she used to have an amazing close-up of a quilt on her header, which showed me that stippling didn't have to be teeny-tiny. So when I was getting ready to do my first free-motion quilting just about a year ago - and I was terrified, because I'd never done it before and didn't have anyone to ask about it - I e-mailed her to ask her if she could give me any tips about how to proceed. We passed several e-mails back and forth, and with lots of encouragement from her, I FMQed my first quilt! Having done many many more now, I think she can take lots of credit for getting me well started!
Here are a few examples of the beautiful quilts you can see on her blog....
|This is her new header photo - after she|
inadvertantly threw away the first one I saw!
|She was judged the overall winner of The Naked Bed Challenge|
with this beauty!!
|And look at this spectacular English-paper-piecing!|
|I love the color in this one - calm and peaceful,|
but never boring!
She wrote a lovely blog post on her typical day here that will give you an idea of her life. It's also got some really cute pics of her family and doggies! I hope you'll check out her blog and spend some time there - Lesly is a talented, generous, friendly quilt blogger and well worth getting to know!!
And just a reminder - next Sunday is the end of the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge!
Be sure to come back and see the beautiful quilts
