My almost 5yo daughter came up with the name of this blog, when I said I wanted to start a blog about my quilts inspired by my friend Sarah's blog.
I asked why she thought I should call mine "Quilting for Happiness", and she said because she knows how much I love quilting and it makes me happy.
It's true! I'm feeling so filled up by it! I love dreaming of quilting, shopping for fabrics, reading books about quilting (including Elm Creek Quilts novels!) and reading magazines including Down Under Quilts online (via a free 6 month subscription through Sarah Fielke's site Sewn.net.au). I even enjoy handwashing and ironing the fabric to get it ready!!
I did my first patchwork class at Sewco Sewing Centre at Mt Gravatt in May this year. What follows are some of my first creations!
