Hi, I'm Marie and I am happy to be able to join this QAL  I just finished piecing another quilt called "Jessi's Medallion" that was designed by Deana and I had so much fun with it that I wanted to try this one too.  Deana is a very talented and creative quilter and I have learned much of what I know from her. 

I have been quilting for several years and love it.  I am learning to quilt on my domestic sewing machine and found it to be lots of fun.  I have a hard time finding as much time as I would like to devote to sewing.

I have a patient, supportive husband, 4 beautiful daughters and 16 grandchildren.   I am hoping to give a quilt to each grandchild when they get married so I have lots of excuses to make quilts.  So far only one is married, so I have 15 to go.  I have several UFO's and hope to finish several of those this year. 

Here is a picture of the quilt top I just finished--just in time to clean up my sewing room and get started on this new QAL.


  1. It is just stunning in those colors, Marie, and you are such a meticulous seamstress that I imagine it is near perfect.

    Thanks for the wonderful compliments. You are my mentor when it comes to sewing and precision. I am honored to be your friend.

  2. Marie, it's gorgeous! I had hoped to do that one too but think I may have been a no-reply blogger at the time. least I can do the new one!
