One Year Anniversary!

One year ago I posted my very first blog! The red and white exhibit in New York provided the original impetus and I ended up doing three posts about that here. 
I don't have any new red and white quilts to share but this is red and white and I think you'll like it. It's  part of the biggest 'quilt' I've seen. (Let's not get into "what is a quilt?" right now)

It is composed of Navaho rugs sewn together. As you can see it's quite amazing in size as well as beauty. That's me posing in front of it ( and I'm six feet tall).
It was on display at one of the many Arizona Centennial events.
Speaking of that.......the 100 Years; 100 Quilts exhibit is currently on display in Tucson through December 2012 (see more about it here) and a Regional Study Group Meeting will be held at the end of the month - also in Tucson. Click here for more details. Perhaps I'll meet some of you there!

Who knew where this blogging thing would take me?.... It's been a year of real growth. I have learned a great deal about the process and continue to fine tune with each post.  It takes more time than I knew but I really enjoy it. It was rewarding to have over 50 followers before the year was out. It was a milestone for me!
I don't always get a reply back to each of you but I want you to know that I really appreciate your taking time to comment and knowing you check back  to see what I'm up to now and then keeps me on task.

I look forward to continued exploration of all things quilt and textile related and to sharing that journey with anyone who wants to travel with me!  I enjoy the company!


  1. Oh, goody! I get to be the first to congratulate you on your first year. You have done a great job to introduce me to some of the history of quilts and quilters. I love my very own quilt intensely (July 15 post)and am enjoying reading about many others. I think there's a book in all this material.

  2. Congratulations! One year of great information and enjoyable reading!!

  3. I have learned many things from your posts and appreciate all you have shared with us. Congratulations!
    I love that large quilt--rug--whatever you want to call it. : )

  4. Congrats on a year of success in blog-land. I've enjoyed your posts. This rug-quilt is amazing! Would love to see the AZ exhibit.
