I spent quite a lot of time getting a couple of quilts ready to go on the frame. They had been stored for a while, and picked up tons of threads and other garbage. I am a bit anal about hanging threads, so they had to all be clipped or removed. Then I spent time making more fabric for the BOMs. Neither of these things was photo worthy. This is the only block I got put together today. Hopefully, I will get a JL block or two made tomorrow morning before I have to pick Bella up from pre-school. That would be nice.
I have been thinking about quilting lately. Not piecing, but actually quilting. I have been trying to convince myself that I have to learn how to do fancy quilting if I really want to call myself a quilter. I even started practicing every day for a week. I finally figured out that it is just not my thing. I would much rather spend time playing with fabrics. I really enjoy seeing a well quilted piece. I have a deep admiration for those who enjoy doing this. That being said, I finally realized that I am really all about the fabric and color and what patterns I can create with them. I have also realized that is okay. My quilts are going to continue to have simple quilting unless I win the lottery and can afford to have someone who enjoys quilting do that part of it.
Now it is your turn. Do you prefer a quilt where it is the quilting that shines, or one where the fabric is the star? Isn't it wonderful that this art form can be so rewarding for all of us.
Joyful quilting, everyone. I will be back on Friday.
