My First Quilt!

I never thought I could make a quilt, but here it is.  I’m not a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination.  My mother was a master quilt-maker, and so is my sister.  I’ve always enjoyed looking at fabrics, and this time I decided to give quilting a try.  I’m so pleased with it, and although it’s a Christmas one, I think I’ll keep it on the kitchen railing for a while.  

I honestly thought I would hate sewing the pieces together, but I actually enjoyed it.  Wonder of wonders.  I had commissioned my sister to make another large quilt for our bed — even bought the fabric and sent it to her.  After she saw a photo of this, she suggested I make my own larger quilt (with a little help from her).  So — that’s what we’re going to do.  But don’t expect to see the large quilt for several months!

    Well, Zach — It make take a lifetime to make the next one we’ve planned. And it’s covered with florals — not sure if you’d like it.
