a years worth of work
Here is the first quilt I ever made. The project that got me psyched about design in quilting and hurled me over the hangups I once had with the grandmotherly title of ‘quilting’ (say this in your favorite snobby accent). This baby took me forever… or about a year to finish, but was well worth every second of my children’s nap times, road trip (passenger side) sewing and just about every other moment I could sneak in a stitch or two- the beauty of hand applique- like knitting and crochet, you can take it everywhere you go. Now this quilt currently hangs in the Desert Rose room of the Slot Canyon’s Inn Bed & Breakfast in Escalante Utah, you know– if you’d like to swing by and take a look. I love revisiting projects, you so quickly forget all of the work that goes into it.
