Sharon checking in from Massachusetts
Just popping in to introduce myself, my name is Sharon, I live in Massachusetts and just joined the group after reading how interested Tonya was in Gwen Marston Quilts. Reading about "Liberated Quiltmaking" in her post reminded me that I had met Gwen a few years ago when she came and lectured for my old guild. She also taught a workshop and the quilt I have posted was the results of the workshop. I know its not "liberated" but to be honest, it was liberating to create a little quilt and not worry about where each of the blocks went in the design. I have a few ideas about making "letter blocks" and there are some sayings I would love to get down in a quilt. My interests are varied, I quilt, sew, knit and read alot. I love to travel, have be on 10 cruises since 2001 and spend time each year at Disney World. I love Disney so much that I think one of my quilts should have "liberated" mouse ears on them. Gotta try that one... Guess thats all for now, I am posting my quilts to my blog. I am listed as Sharon at Knittingauntie in the side bar if anyone wants to check out what I have in progress.
