a quilt???

Am I ready for one??

I'm thinking about starting my first quilt. I wanted to do small sewing projects until I was comfortable with the machine, the fabric and the technique. I'm really glad I went with this approach. I taught myself to pull through and finish. Now, I know I'm probably jumping the gun, because in reality I won't start it until January; but I'm constantly looking through patterns and fabrics to find the perfect match for my first quilt.

Things I'm looking for in my first quilt:
-queen size
-matching shams
-pattern that Mike likes {believe it or not, he's picky}
-lots of white with pops of color

Yes, I'm going to make it for our bed. We have a plain white quilt on it now and I love it, but I want another to accent with.

I am no expert in quilting so I'll just say good luck! I have so much fun with it.

P.S. Are you going to see New Moon??

I probably will just wait for 'New Moon' to come out on DVD. I'm not extremely excited for it, but want to see it. How about you?

sigh. I wish I could be dignified and say the same thing but I'm actually excited for it. I suppose it's my guilty pleasure.

It is exciting, I just don't really have anyone to go with here and I'm not going to drag Mike to it. :)

You'll have to tell if you like it!
