What Will Your Quilts Say about YOU?

Good Morning, Quilters!

As the winter settles in for a prolonged stay,  January is a time for introspection. It’s a season more conducive to thinking than to action…

Perhaps it’s a good time to spend a moment thinking about our quilts and setting goals.

The experts on goal-setting say–“Begin with the end in mind.”  

What does that mean in terms of our quilting projects?

TIME TRAVEL

Perhaps a little time travel is in order…

Imagine it’s the year 2117--and a family member has just inherited a trunk of your quilts.

What will YOUR quilts say about YOU?

Do they say what YOU want them to say?

Over the next several Fridays, I will offer a few other ways to think about quilting.

Perhaps you could add a few journal pages to your Quilt Notebook and write down your answers.

Please share YOUR thoughts, ideas, concerns…

As our New Friend, Kelly Ashton would say:  “Quilting is not a matter of life or death–it’s more important than that!”

Happy, Thoughtful Stitching,

Rescue Quilts–Open Line Friday

Good Morning, Quilters!

Last year I rescued a quilt from a painter.

He was using a hand-made quilt as a drop cloth.

My heart sank as I watched him unfurl it under his ladder and prepared to paint.

“Excuse me….I’ll trade you a real drop cloth for that quilt?”

He looked at me like I was a little strange….(Quilters—we’re used to that.)

The quilt had a few holes (but fortunately no paint– yet)  So I repaired it and gave it to one of my daughters.

My friend said she rescued a quilt at a tailgate-a young couple was using it to wrap their grill.

Oh dear….

What about YOU?

Have you ever rescued a quilt?

We’d LOVE to HATE to hear!
