Quilting While Away

quiltingflying

I belong to the Music City Modern Quilt Guild. A few meetings back we had a how to sew hexagons workshop. We were all making a preplanned project. As usual, I had my own ideas. After finishing the Jolene quilt top, I wanted to take a break from handwork. I’m away from my sewing machine for a couple of weeks. I had to leave Jolene at home. I needed a project to work on during my downtimes while I’m away. I’m back to handwork. I’m working on my hexagons. I’m going to use them as a border. The center panel will be another appliqué. One of the fabrics I am using for the hexagons has a print that includes a man and a woman hiking. I want to use them as part of the center design. I want this to be a camping quilt. I was just visiting a friend who had a cute little camper. I think I will include that camper in the narrative.

A few years back my sister-in-law got me started on my first quilt. Ever since then I have been hooked in a big way. Quilting was always an idea that I was attracted to, but hadn't taken the time to dive into. The process takes me to that meditative place that art can bring into your life. I've always been a maker. Making is an important part of life.
