Close-up of Loopers in the Sky with Diamonds, 2005
Welcome to my 100th post. I hope you've been enjoying my blog, quilts, how-tos, tutorials, patterns, dolls and the odd curio! I've really enjoyed sharing what I've learned and what I do. And I really like hearing from you whether by email or comments posted. It tells me that there is an appetite for what I am doing. If you have questions about how I did something I hope you'll ask me - I am more than happy to explain! If there's something you want to see more of, just ask!
So to celebrate this milestone I decided to share another one of my quilts. This is an original design and I made this quilt in 2005 for my daughter whose nickname is Loopers. She was at university studying astrophysics and I wanted to make a quilt with an astronomy theme. I call the quilt Loopers in the Sky with Diamonds!
What is it about cats and quilt? Cats are drawn to them like catnip!
The quilt was made using my foundation pieced English paper piecing technique that I've written about in the past. It is a fun way to create interesting blocks and designs. Over the next little while I'll show you close-ups of several of the blocks!
Over the next 100 posts I have lots more in store. First off is finishing Cherry Blossom quilt today or tomorrow. And then there will be more nine patch quilts and free nine patch patterns coming! And maybe the odd story to go with the quilt!

There will be more of Anne H (Mom's) African themed quilts; this one is in progress. It needs another border, quilting and Anne's beautiful embroidery and beading!

There will be lots of hexagon quilts too!
I hope you'll stay tuned and that you'll enjoy what I bring to you in the next one hundred posts!
Before I sign off how about a few garden pictures?
