|Quilt journals - 1983 to present day|
My total? 91. Bummer. I really thought I had made a hundred. 28 years of quilting, 91 quilts, that's about 3 a year. So I won't hit 100 for three more years? But what if I pick up the pace? Then I could hit 100 in the same year I turn 60. Cool. OK, now I am over my disappointment. And I have a new goal. 9 more quilts done sometime in my 60th year.
To that end, I spent Thursday at a quilt workshop. I sewed from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm and got to use my cute little Featherweight. I got 20 blocks done and sewn together. I still have to put the borders on and decide if I like it. It might be too busy. I also don't know - exactly what I am going to do with it? Give it as a present? Maybe a baby quilt? I just don't know, I even dreamed about it, trying to decide! (Hey, doesn't everyone dream about quilts and fabric?) Once I get the borders done, I will be able to pin it on the Longarm. I do have this new desire to always have a quilt on there, waiting to be quilted.
What's that you say? How am I doing on the bedroom drapes?
Oh no, we've run out of time, have to go, can't answer that question until later. I have to go work on my quilt journals or thread some needles or something quilty and urgent. Ta ta!
