Here is my first Christmas quilt to do for this year. I had already quilted a tree skirt-but this is my first quilt! I only have 3 more customs in the studio! One is a banner for a local church-I've got lots of great ideas for that one.
I've always felt "funny" about quilting customers quilts because I make one quilt a year and some of these gals turn out a dozen or more a year! I feel a little better after reading about this quilt shop in Hannibal,MO. The article is in the Quilt Sampler fall/winter edition. The quilt shop is named Hickory Stick Quilt Shop and the owner has never made a quilt! She has a successful business since 1977. Wow-that's amazing! i love to read that magazine and read the sories behind the shops.
I busted some stash today!! My Mother came over to pick up a quilt for her friend and I pawned about 10 yards of blue polka-dot fabric off on her. I told her she might need it to make her grandchildren quilts. It felt good seeing that fabric driving off! Still trying to organize my fabric. I have only been buying fabric for a few years and I have more than I will use in a lifetime (especially making one quilt a year!). maybe I can watch Hoarders tonight with a clear conscience.
