Let's Bind It!
I absolutely love what I do. I love every aspect of quilting. I love writing about it, designing, piecing, quilting and the planning, but I would have to say I most like selecting the fabrics, and this is how I manage to get myself into trouble.
I am addicted to batiks. I love the color saturation, the texture and all that I can do with them. So, with a stack of projects waiting for me to work on, and the Sunbonnet Sue completed, I must get back on track with my 2013 quilting goals. I have a real sense of accomplishment, even though it was a detour. I learned a lot. I now have an appreciation for vintage quilts and the people that lovingly restore them.
Amateur that I am, in this field, I am proud of the work I did on this quilt. As for Lois, it takes a special person to spend her time and skills restoring vintage quilts. I wish her all success in her business, and I hope you visit her website. I think you will find it worth the time.
Well, let's see if I can begin my 2013 Pantone project, or if I will be sidetracked again. Wish me luck!
