My first posting!

Hello everybody, you're reading the first post on my brand-new blog!  I've been enjoying so many great blogs lately that I wanted to start my own, so that I also can share what I'm up to.  I like quilting; I also like looking at quilts, and I've seen some gorgeous work on these blogs.

Here's a quilt I finished  this month for my guild's 2010 challenge - "Beautiful African Ladies."  We were to create a quilt, wall hanging, block, bag, or wearable art using fabric that depicted African ladies, or we could embroider a design.  I released my ladies from a panel by Julia Cairns and posed them in front of an exhibit hall - this appliqued quilt is named "The No. 1 Ladies' Quilting Society."  Enjoy!


  1. Yippe Linda! So happy to see your blog! Welcome to the quilt blog world.

  2. Your blog looks great! Neat quilt too. The ladies are perfect on it.

  3. i am going to be your number one fan.

  4. You made a beautiful quilt! I love the ladies in style and the house in the backdrop! Great perspective and colors too.

  5. I love this! I also like The No, 1 Ladies Detective Agency books. I named my quilt shop after them!!!! The No. 1 Ladies Quilt Shop.

  6. Beautiful! I also made a quilt using the same fabric panel and Julia Carnes "Maasai" pattern. I have a Keith Mallet border print with African ladies that I might "release", as you say, onto a quilt. Thanks for the inspiration.

    The No. 1 Ladies Dectective Agency was a great television series, starring Queen Latifah, which I was very sad when it left the air.
