First Post!

Ok here we go with my first ever post!  I'm a bit nervous and shy about this kind of thing - I'm more of a lurker than a poster but I'm planning to change that and put myself out there so to speak.

I've decided to start this blog, because in January 2011 I started going to quilting classes and now I'm totally hooked!  I've only actually finished 1 small quilt so far but I've already got a list of things I'd like to try.

Since my new obsession has taken hold I've discovered all the amazingly beautiful and inspiring quilter blogs online and this is what has lead me to blogger and this first post!  I've posted a few photos of things I've made on my facebook page but I kind of feel that friends and family think I'm either showing off or that I'm going a bit batty . . . so I've decided to take the plunge and start this blog - I want to keep a record of the things I attempt to make and to hopefully see a bit of progress as I go along.

I'm now going to attempt to upload a photo of my first quilt, we covered lots of different styles of applique in class and each heart on the quilt is an example of each of those styles.  I've also made a few other wee bit's and pieces in between classes as I can't seem to keep away from my sewing machine so I'm going to add them in too.
My first Quilt!

Wonky Bunnies - need a bit more practice with these but the kids love em!
Well there it is - my first post done and it wasn't as difficult as I thought!
