I started this quilt with the idea of large irregular rectangle shapes. That idea morphed into large red circles with a white background. That morphed into using what I had to make something between the two ideas. I can’t remember how I ended up with stripes, but I got into it. I’m not the quilter who collects fabric without know how it’s going to be used. I have a limited space to work. I try to only purchase fabric for future ideas. However, sometimes you just can’t help yourself. I do have a small fabric collection from leftovers, or from all the quilts I haven’t made yet. This quilt gave me a way to use up a lot of my leftovers.

My intention was to make this quilt guy appropriate. I feel like the back fabric helps to keep it that way. The back fabric I had to purchase. I did not have enough of anything to do the back. I think the black edging frames it up nicely. Now, to give it to that special someone.

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.
