Greetings from a newbie...

Greetings everyone from another newbie.  I have been watching the block lotto for sometime now and was very sad that I didn't discover it in time to participate in the wonky house month (I love quilts with houses on them).  I decided to join in this month because I love the scrappy way the blocks look when placed next to each other.   I LOVE LOVE LOVE scrappy quilts too!
I made three square in a square blocks.  I used 30s fabric in the main block on the two blocks below.

I used batiks (I love batiks) in the main 8" block below.

I share a blog with some family members at Daughters of Dorinda.  We've spent the past two years re-creating a quilt made and designed by my Great Great Great Great Grandmother Dorinda.  You can check it out on my blog. 
I have been quilting heavily for over 16 years, but made my first one in junior high school.  I am comfortable with all types of techniques, I hand quilt, I machine quilt on my Bernina, but mostly I LOVE to design quilts.  I like traditional quilts but am easing into some art quilting.  I love all colors but especially those in the autumn color wheel and batiks.

Thanks for letting me join!


  1. We're always glad to have new participants. I'm one of the lucky ones to have won some house blocks in September, and I agree that they are great. Welcome, Kathie L in allentown

  2. Welcome to our group. I have belonged for about 5 months and was lucky enough to win the liberated roses in my second month. They are making an absoluely glorious quilt. It is going o be a favourite. I have the top put together but haven't progressed from there yet.

  3. You are very welcome. I love your blocks! I've added them to the list. We now have a total-so-far this month of 42 blocks.

  4. Welcome! I've belonged for about 7 months. I haven't won yet, but find the posts very inspirational and hope springs eternal!

    Your blocks are lovely.

  5. I'm a newbie just like you. I love the blocks you created.
