I hear other women talking about quilting and they say "I don't enjoy doing that" talking about one aspect of quilting, Well I decided that I wanted to enjoy every step of the whole quilt. From picking out a pattern, or creating one, the fabric choices, to sewing the quilt top, and putting on the quilt frame, and finally sewing on the binding by hand. I looked today at a quilt that I had made about 18 years ago, a bit of the stitching is coming out, so need to fix that, but was noticing how much my quilting has changed. I am not a master quilter by any means, but I have learned allot about the process and I think gotten a little bit better, with each new quilt.
I would like to thank my mechanic for holding up the quilts to get pictures of them, even though he does complain about having to do that. I showed him a picture of a quilt today on the Internet, and said I hope the person holding this quilt doesn't complain about it as much as you do. He said you mean other people have to do that I thought I was the only one being abused in this manner. He really does think he's a funny guy.
