Quilting Once More
I have been quilting since I was in high school (meaning over four decades), but I really hadn't done much recently. I have signed up for two quilting classes this summer, and it has been really great to get back into piecing and quilting. I was even able to find the walking foot for my sewing machine (which is a huge relief because it turns out my sewing machine is older than my eldest child, which means that they are no longer making it, or anything that goes with it). I have been using exclusively fabric that I already own (even for the back of the quilt, which is a situation that will not be able to be sustained for much longer), and while I have yet to get rid of even one bin in my basement, it feels good to be working with fabric. I am not sure why I feel this way, but I have always liked things that are made by hand, and now I am back to creating some of my own.
