Tadpole

Hi! I'm Deborah Bell......I am new to visiting blogs, much less posting on one. Hope this makes it, if not....Ill try again. Anyway...I live in Waxahachie, Texas. My local quilt shop...Common Threads started Civil War Bride a few months back as a bom. It was my first attempt at appliquing......nothing like sinking or swimming! But I have a great group of ladies to help and encourage me. I was very interested to see what other people were doing with it and to be honest....beg and borrow as many tips, help, etc that I could. So....here I am. I finished my first block - #11, minus stitching the feet and eye to my bird.

  6. Welcome Deborah, you will find only support and kindness here. A perfect environment for any new quilt BOM. Can't wait to see you blocks, they are sure to be gorgeous. I have yet to see a block that I did not like, everyone has worked them up in so many different color pallets and techniques. Again, welcome.
