Quilting the Stress Away


Quilting is my first love in the craft world. I have always enjoyed running fabric through a sewing machine. When things  in my life get crazy I tend to run to my sewing room and make a quilt. last week was just such a week. Work was driving me crazy and a friend of my daughter died in an accident, sooo....to the sewing room and this is what I had made when I came out several hours later. I know most people go work out, run or eat, but not me. I sew a quilt!

 I saw a quilt similar to this on a friend to knit with. Normally, well always I am a traditional quilter. Yes I like all the "old" patterns. I do enjoy putting a "new twist" on some of the old patterns, but I do not care for "modern"quilts. Oh I enjoy looking at them but not making them. Quilts have to have a calming affect on me or I really do not care for it in my house.

Yes I am a scrap quilter. I love cutting up fabric and sewing them back together. Weird but calming to me. Happy quilting to everyone.
