Why quilting is such a great hobby for me.
I find large quilts rewarding to make. However, my real love is making small (doll) quilts since I enjoy playing with color, prints and scraps. My reward comes more quickly!
Finished piecing this star quilt today and will hand quilt.
I used the ( Tri-Recs) ruler. The package comes with two pieces: one labeled " tri" and one labeled "rec." However, for this quilt, I used the "tri" ruler. Lots of triangles in this pattern to cut out and this tool was a life saver!
The last few days have been really hot (90+)---I'm back indoors. Fortunately, tomatoes etc. grow on their own!
Recently we were flipping channels on T.V. and came upon the program, " Hoarders". Later, while stitching ( small) quilt and viewing T.V.--- with broad smiles ( guess who) walked into media room with huge stack of small quilts. Without finding near all ( guess who) counted 76 (small) quilts and suggested title for " new" reality show! It's wonderful to have a (guess who) with sense of humor. My only question--do I really qualify as " Quilt" hoarder?
I think I will mosey outside to the garden and ponder suggestion of new reality show!
Chester says hello and hope you all have a delightful weekend!
