Slideshow of quilts

Friday, April 17, 2009

Boy with spring here it's very hard to want to sew. I need to do something to feel inspired. I cleaned out 2 cabinets in my sewing room and reorganized my fabrics for when I do feel like quilting again. It's been a tough winter with no jobs and no prospects here Michigan, where the politicians believe in taxing big business right out of our jobs. Hopefully, they will wise up and we'll get back to work here. Maybe then I'll feel like starting something new, but right now it's finishing the old and not starting anything new. Fortunately I have a lot to finish from teaching so many quilt classes in the past. Although I am down to 22 quilt tops to quilt, 9 quilt tops to finish piecing. That's way down from 4 years ago when I first joined stashbusters I have 70 quilts to quilt and 12 tops to finish piecing. I started making myself finish a quilt before I could start a new quilt. and It really helped. I also haven't been teaching very much. I signed up at the local quilt shop here in Michigan but unfortunately I picked a shop that really didn't want me to teach there. They did nothing to advertise the classes, so I won't try to teach there again.

I wanted to post my favorite quilt that I have made so far this year.
It isn't even a quilt but I have loved making these bags.
