Friday five

1. How many sewing machines do you own - what is your favorite?
I own two - an old Kenmore and a Janome Jem, but I have mostly been quilting on my mother's electronic Janome in recent years.

2. Did your mom/sister/family member teach you how to sew/quilt? My mother mostly did. I did take some sewing lessons in junior high.

3. How many finished quilts have you made?
Gosh, I have a spreadsheet someplace with the list on it. I think somewhere between 30 and 40, but that counts little bitty wallhangings and whole-cloth baby quilts and everything. I've only made two bed-size quilts (because I live in the south, and how many do you really need?) but I've made a lot of lap-size ones.

4. What is your favorite block?
Log cabin, I guess. Because it's so easy and versatile.

5. What inspires you to quilt?
Color. It's color-schemes that I usually start with, rather than patterns.
