They brought along a new friend and I know she is one I can make 'an old friend out of ' for, like the other three, she quilts and shared one of their traits...enthusiasm! Knowing they were coming to visit, I took six quilts down to the studio with me so I could provide a little 'Show and Tell' for them.
Now, I knew my three friends had already seen these quilts, but my NEW friend had not. You'd never know it though, as all four of them oohed and aahed over each quilt as if they'd never seen them before. ENTHUSIASM! I don't know what seeing these quilts did for them, but it did me a world of good to know that my quilts still could make people smile. And, their comments made me really want to buckle down and QUILT!!
For those who have never read my blog before...all my work is by hand. This quilt I made for my grandson when he was a small child....now 26, he still appreciates it. Actually, when he was that little kid, he called every piece of my fabric stash 'a quilt.' Each star on this quilt is a different blue scrap of fabric.
I've always said I'd make another, but to date, one hasn't appeared and I don't know if I would do another completely covered with silk ribbon embroidery. Well, actually, who knows?
