Lily's Quilts - the Flickr Group

It's time.  It's time for me to set up my very own Flickr group.  The day has come when someone has seen fit to make something that I thought up all by myself (thank you Lynz).  This is a very exciting day for me.

Why join my flickr group?  Well for one to show off anything you've made from a pattern or tutorial of mine.  Two, to meet and chat with me and other friends of Lily's Quilts.  Thirdly, to be in the right place at the right time for news of my Quilt-a-long which is starting IMMINENTLY and will be sponsored by my real life friend Mandy (aka Simply Solids).  And fourthly so I don't look like Norma no mates with a Flickr group with me and me alone sitting in the corner drinking a cup of tea all by myself and crying into my fat quarters.  

And what's it all about?  It's all about having fun with quilting, having a laugh and a joke, not worrying about getting it wrong, making up the rules as you go, seams that are too small, points that don't match, using the wrong needle, buying cheap thread that snarls up your machine, not knowing how to clean the fluff out of your machine so it builds up into large sheep-like lumps and prevents your machine from working - it's all about the bish bash bosh of quilting.  It's a group to come and play in if you feel like everyone else knows what they're doing except you.  So, without further ado,  here's the Flickr group and here's the button, should you be inclined to add a button to your blog :-)

  1. Here's hoping there are plenty of quilts displayed here soon, based on your tutorials and designs.
    I wonder if anyone has done their own version of your book quilt?

  12. Have duly joined. And, although not a quilter I have just made curtains for L&S, put the pole up and screwed it to the wall and it is all so wobbly that I have had to tell them they are not allowed to open their own curtains on pain of being knocked out.

  13. It all sounds very exciting to me Lynne. Bish bash bosh eh? And you have to clean your machine! No? Really? I thought you just bought a new one when the old one was full up. Do you mean I spent all that money for nothing? :))
