Foundation Paper Piecing - Traditional House Block

  Pinterest is a great source of inspiration for me, and I came across a foundation pieced block that I wanted to sew up almost immediately.  I am a traditional quilter, and this block is one of the many that I love - along with the color blue.  After deciding how big I want this quilt to be (and deciding that I was going to chop off the top smokestack piece of the block) I made this:

11 Years

11 years.  I just realized that I have been in this 'business' (I put that in quotes because I feel as though I have not worked a day since I started - I love it that much) for 11 years.  2003 is when it all started, right after my son was born.  I started very small, with only a couple of bolts, a sales permit, and a hope that it will provide a little bit of money.  Fast forward 11 years, and here we are.

It has been truly a blessing and joy to be here, and I look forward to many more years here.
