Queen of The Seam Ripper

Queen of the seam ripper!!  I had thought about making this my Blog title as this is how I view myself a lot of the time when working on sewing projects.  But I have always been intrigued with the word "serendipity" since watching the movie titled "Serendipity.  John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale were the stars in this 2001 movie.  From then on, I thought I needed to use "this word" somehow/somewhere in life.  So, that is how I chose Serendipity in Quilting.  

I have been busy the last few days working on a project of a small quilt.  As soon as I can bribe my son (that usually consists of a Dairy Queen Blizzard, or my friend with lunch) I will include a picture of the finished project.

This is the year of "the old dog (me) trying to learn some new tricks.  I have never joined anything of anything on the internet, just been a lurker.   But, a few weeks ago I was browsing a few sites just looking for some ideas or doll quilt sites to make a couple of Valentine quilts for my granddaughters.  Their ages are 6 and 9, live out of state, and both got American Girl dolls for Christmas.  So, what better for gramma to do than make them quilts for their dolls.

So, in my lurking, I found this really great site about making small quilts and it even had a small quilt club you could join on line.  So, I decided this was a good time as ever to get involved in something I truly love to do. I enjoy all of my crafts, but I think quilting is my most fulfilling.  In this on line group, you are given a monthly challenge to make a specific small quilt, if you choose.  Then there is a site you can post your completed quilt for that month.  Having others appreciate your work is also very rewarding.  

Now I have to go look up my son to see if he is in the mood to be bribed.  Please check back, I am hoping in some small way that I may have a short cut or idea that you might find interesting.  Or you may have something for me.

Thanks for stopping by,
