Christine's Quilt Closet Joins the Team!

Hi Everyone, it's nice to meet you, and many thanks to Rachel and Pat for leading the charge on this challenge! My name is Christine and I've been addicted to quilting for about 4 years now. I live in Connecticut with my husband, daughter and two Golden Retriever puppies, and I've recently gotten into blogging thanks to my friend Lisa -- check out her blog at http://candlelitequilter.blogspot.com/.

I began my calendar quilt today, and used the embroidery feature on my machine to indicate the month/year. I also had plans to do a weight loss quilt -- even had a pattern selected -- but decided to combine that thought with this challenge. So each month I'll also record my weight as well, which isn't pretty at this point so I'm swearing you all to secrecy! Not only will I work on a beautiful keepsake quilt, but I'll also be working OFF the extra pounds to a healthier self. Here's what I've accomplished so far:

In addition to this blog, I'll also be updating my personal quilt blog at http://christinesquiltcloset.blogspot.com/. I look forward to a fun year of quilting with you!!

Nice to meet you. Love your fabrics. Good luck in your weight loss too. I like the idea of the embroidery but I would have to do it by hand.

My number is much scarier lol!!!!

I have over 100lbs to lose but I fight the urge to eat now by sewing instead! I've joked that i've given up one addiction for another.

Happy quilting!
