My First blog post

Going back years ago, I was in Dubbo, NSW, staying with family.  Friends of our family that I had not met where staying at my Brother in Law's place for a few days Jan was into Patchwork and Quilting and was doing some applique at the time.
        I asked what she was doing and she explained applique to me.  Jan had some quilt magazines with her and let me have a look through them.  I told Jan that Patchwork and Quilting looks interesting.  Jan said to me she would send some Quilt Magazines to have a look at.
I looked at the patterns and picked out some that I liked.
          A few years later I decided I would like a Sewing Machine for my Birthday.  Brett bought me a Brother BM 2600 Sewing Machine, Gutterman Threads and a Pin cushion.  About a week later I bought some fabric from Spotlight in Dubbo and started making a Quilt.
Here is a photo of my first Quilt.

 The pattern was called Imperial Blue. I cut out squares. sewed those together, added sashing, then a border.  Some of the quilt is hand sewn as I was back at Mum and Dad's place and did not have my Sewing Machine with me.
