Resolution to QuiltJanuary 29, 2013
How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? I’m doing A-okay.
About a week ago, I started work on the quilt tops for my grandchildren, and I’m loving it! I don’t know exactly what it is that appeals to me, but I find it to be fun, creative, and extremely challenging.
Twenty three blocks are finished, including New England Stars, Missouri Stars, Windmills, Flying Geese, and a funky house made with musical note fabric for each quilt because they both love music.
And, a quilt for my grandchildren would not be complete without a Maple Leaf because they associate all things “Maple” with treasured friendship. I have one made and three more to go – labor of love.
I will not even attempt to blog about the topic of quilting except to say I wish I’d started sooner.
And, if you have ever wondered what a new quilter’s most important tool is, here is mine:
Back to the sewing machine to finish that flower square that I’ve already ripped out once but I know I’ll get it right this time.
