I'm trying not to squeal with excitement. This is a HUGE step in my quilting world, and I'm so honored to be invited to participate with all of you much more experienced quilters.
I'm 27, a combat veteran, and I'm VERY silly. I usually think outside the box, EXCEPT for my quilts. I'm a great copyer, not great with colour, and I tend to like more traditional patterns. I joined this group to get me to think outside the (nine-patch, no triangles, straight lines) box. Like I said, I'm a copyer, so when Tonya posted her Santa Alien, I loved it, but I had to tweak it. I suppose owning every season of The Next Generation on DVD makes me a Trekkie (and late-night debates about whether a character from the holodeck and a starfleet officer could have children and all the logistics therein), and I really must be, because when I saw it I mentally removed an eye and changed the skin colour, et voila, Vulcan. Santa Spock. That's my idea for this winter class, and we'll see just how far I can throw my templates, rulers, and Borg-like quest for perfection.
aside: My blog is linked in the sidebar, but only recently are there craft posts and very few of them at that. The rest is insight into my life. If you have the time and inclination, I welcome readers. I have strong, currently unpopular opinions. You've been warned... :)
