Continuing my posts about quilts I have made in the past, here are two of my favourites. I made these for my gorgeous girls several years ago. They were machine pieced but entirely hand quilted. It was difficult to get them finished for Christmas as I could only sew once they had both gone to bed after around 9pm.
Sometimes I look at a finished quilt and can’t actually believe that I made it. People often say to me that they don’t know how I have the patience and, to be honest, if I look at the project as a whole I would agree that I don’t know either. I think the thing is that I don’t picture the whole project at the start normally, just a block or section at a time and then it gets a mind of its own and reaches a point of no return. The part I do not enjoy much is the layering of the quilt ‘sandwich’ and the binding. The end results are so very worth it to me and I cannot imagine a life without my version of creativity.
More another time. Hope I am not being too indulgent in sharing these – let me know if it is too tedious or seems narcissistic 🙂
