BreakTime

I’m just taking a little break and thought I’d be crazy and post some of my quilts.

I made this one for my daughter when she was in middle school. I didn’t have a pattern with either of this quilts, nor a clear idea of what the finished product would look like. I just hit my creative flow and went with it.

I made this second quilt for my nephew for Christmas one year. I built the quilt around fabrics that were preprinted and meant for a fabric book. That’s not where my creative flow took me.

I’m pretty sure my daughter’s quilt is long gone, I’ll have to ask my nephew if he still has his.

  1. These are so cool! Isn’t it so satisfying to make something? I crochet and while I’m making a scarf, or a blanket, or hat – I think about the person it will be for as I work. Like I’m putting my positive thoughts and love in the piece as I make it. I have also collected and saved pieces of fabric so I can make a quilt for my son. I thought I would make it for when he goes to college (in five years) so I have plenty of time!

    Thanks for sharing more of yourself here Edi!

  3. Cassie: I think its important to maintain a creative outlet. I had to quite quilting when I worked on my Masters a few years ago because it brought me more stress than pleasure. I’m really thinking about getting back into it.
    Medeia: I started quilting about 25 years ago! WOW that’s a long time!!LOL I even had an exhibit at the public library once upon a time!
