I am a retired computer person who has converted a lot of her time to quilting. My quilts are not 'artsy', but more traditional. I love to try out new techniques and am constantly looking for ways to perfect my art.

Delusions of Grandeur
Never, never tell yourself that a quilt it EASY. I am making the Zen Quilt for a good friend in Texas. (Texas needs this, they want to secede!!!) O-this should be quick, just rectangles and squares. OK, some of these rectangles and squares are really small! 1.25 x 2 inches. The batik greens are very similar. The blues are very similar. The quilt is batik greens and blues...argghh. So, thinking 'easy', I did not keep careful track of the greens and blues. Thinking "easy", I divided 10.5 and got 5.5...arrgghhh! Pressing on (pun intended).
I will NEVER think "easy" again!
