I hear it all the time. "I wish I could quilt like you. Will you just make me a quilt?"To be honest, several of my kids don't have a quilt yet. So I made it my personal mission, to share my quilting knowledge online. To create quilting patterns, and tutorials that are easy for beginners, and encourage newbies. I started a website called quiltcetera.com. I had passion and excitement and enthusiasm. Then I had two more children. Bringing the running total to 8. Yep. You read it right, 8 kids.

I probably shouldn't do this too often, but I let myself get completely caught up in quilting this weekend. I made two mini-quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. One is an appliqué red flower on a cream background (2 leaves, embroidered stem).
