On your mark, get set, BLOG!

Okay folks, bear with me. I've never done this before and I'm not sure it's a good idea. Kind of like letting a toddler loose in a toy store. Or candy store. Or quilter in a quilt store with unlimited funding...a bit scary when you stop to think about it.

But after much prompting and prodding, I'm venturing out onto the interweb. Hopefully I will not get lost or lose my way. I've been assured (unknowingly by various bloggers) that this is fun and painless. We'll just have to see about that.

In the meantime, here I am, and here's my header, in all its glory. In fact, the name of the quilt in the header is More Glorious Than Solomon. Would you like to see the full quilt?

I'm sorry that the best picture of the quilt has me in the foreground. Way to spoil a pretty picture, good going! But you get the idea. This photo was taken at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara in 2005. An oldie but a goodie.

And as to the quilt's title "More Glorious Than Solomon," the label on the back reads "MORE GLORIOUS THAN SOLOMON" observe the lilies, even Solomon in all his glory did not clothe himself like one of these Matthew 6:28-29 Begun in a Ruth McDowell class 3/05. Original Design based on my photo. Suzanne Kistler, August 2005."

I have to say that this is the most challenging quilt I've ever finished, and it ranks up there as one of my favorites. I hope you like it as much as I do. :)
