Where to start?

for the 'Abundance" picnic quiltAs with any creative quilt the question is…Where to start?

In the last week before last Christmas…I arrived home from a trip up north.  My lovely partner is always pleased to see me, but he made sure I was organised quickly with a cup of tea and a position by the phone.  Well, it went!  A lovely voice on the line said, after a brief introduction…”Do you remember buying a raffle ticket a while ago for a new sewing machine?  Well, you’ve won!”  The tickets were in support of the Remarkables Quilting Symposium in the South Island of New Zealand in early 2011.

I did remember indeed.  I had looked down at that book of tickets and thought..’Wow it would be great to win that’…a brand new Bernina 440 Quilter’s Edition.

I was so excited..it was like a doorway had opened for me in to new adventures and opportunity.  I wasn’t brand new to sewing…my Bernina Special was continuing to serve me well after 22 years.  …But I had never made a quilt.
