How Can Quilts Tell a Story?-Open Line Friday

Quilts can Speak

Good Morning, Quilters!

I believe that quilts that tell a story are more likely to be cherished by our family and friends and consequently, more likely to stand the test of time..(as in not become a painter’s drop cloth–read more HERE)

So how do we communicate The Story?

Let’s brainstorm ideas today!

We can leave messages in the machine quilting…(See Pat’s Quilt HERE) or Henry’s Quilt HERE

Labels can include more than just the quilter’s name, date and home town…

Quilts can Speak

ENRICHING THE STORY

The colors we choose,

The patterns we design,

The machine quilting motifs we stitch

all help Tell the Story…

What about YOU?

What techniques have YOU used in YOUR quilts to Sing YOUR song?

We’d LOVE to hear YOUR STORY!

The Lowly Thimble in Jeopardy (at Monopoly)!

Thimble, Lori Kennedy Designs

Dateline:  Pawtucket, Rhode Island, February 13, 2017

To the shock and horror of quilters everywhere, Hasbro, the maker of the beloved board game, Monopoly has decided the Thimble is out!

The Thimble has been deemed “pointless”!  

Our beloved notion has been part of the game since 1935…

This insult coming on the heels of the 2013 decision to replace the Iron with a cat! —   Read Pressing News:  The Inbox Jaunt Thimble Thursday HERE

I would like to re-new my petition to add the Rotary Cutter as the replacement token!

What about YOU?  What do YOU think of The Thimble, The Iron…

What do YOU recommend as a replacement?

We’d LOVE to hear!

Signed,

One Outraged Quilter,
