No more books, no more fabric. This was my mantra after the weekend of travel and quilt shows. It had something to do with the few solids that I bought.
I also resolved to not start any new projects. That went out the window when I bought 'Tis the Season Even though it's fused, each tree takes about 15 minutes to blanket stitch around. This was the insert in a quilt in the book, but I thought it would make a fun banner.
I've quilted a few quilts, here is Debbies. It was supposed to be a gift, she liked it so much she's keeping it for herself and making another one! I can relate. I donated my "mom's" quilt to the hospice fundraiser on Friday night and I felt like I was giving my mom away. Yes, I cried. We stitch so much of our lives into our work. I wonder if a non-quilter has any inkling of this?
