To say the least, quilters are among the most talented people on earth in my opinion. I have a very active Pinterest page full of quilts and a folder on my computer just for quilt ideas. I am a free thinker and do not like to follow directions. I think of quilts as works of art, left up to the artist to create and the public to enjoy. I am amazed at what I see other quilters create! I have to remind myself, I am only limited by my imagination. I am in awe of the talented ladies who are dedicated to this art!
As Christmas approached and with it the grandchildren coming to visit, I had to put away all the fabric that was covering the guest bed. I thought ahead on this one (I am so proud of myself) I bagged it in coordinating fabrics so I can pull one bag and I am ready to create!
I made one lap quilt this last fall. I intended to make more but I turned instead to making doll clothes for my granddaughter's new doll. That was a lot of fun, too. I plan to make lap quilts this year for the veterans' project in my NSDAR chapter. My goal is to make one each month...wish me luck because genealogy takes me away from the sewing machine. What's a quilting genealogist to do!
