Count Me In!

Hello! I am SO excited to be joining you!

My name is Doris, in Des Moines, I'm a quilter of about ten years now, a sew-ist for 20+ years thanks to Mom, and I already have my project...I first blogged about it here, in July. I think my third color will end up being lime green (my favorite!), a deep aqua, or hot pink, so undecided still! But the B&W fabric and pattern idea are ready to go!I will be jumping into this project as soon as all those Christmas projects are finished!

Thanks for the invite, Jackie!

I love the dress form fabric! A kaleideoscope quilt in b&w will look great-I love the idea of a modern tilt on a tradition pattern.

Lovely fabrics, especially the dress form fabric. I really should get out there and grab some black and whites.

Love the dress manaquin fabric! Your quilt should look stunning.

I thought up a design last night (head was whirring with ideas) but I'll have to write it down so I don't forget over christmas.

LOL, the way you began your post reminded me of those jump rope songs we used to sing in grade school, "My name is Delores, and I'm from Des Moines," and I sew Dresses! Welcome to our group!
