Yesterday was President's Day and since I didn't have to work, I spent the
afternoon quilting. As I was working on the binding for my Lone Star
wallhanging, I showed it off to David.
He likes the quilt and then asked that question: "What are you going to do
I don't have an answer for that. Because we have slightly different
aesthetic senses around here. I would quite happily cover every surface
around here in quilts, David feels that there are enough our already. He has
specifically asked that I not cover every wall with quilts. I'm further
hampered by the fact that most of the time, I spend so much time working on a
quilt that I fall in love with it and really don't want to let it go.
So what do I do with all the quilts I make that really are not destined for
someone else, like baby quilts are? I've given a quilt or two to some
family and friends who've just not appreciated the work that goes into it.
That is not a feeling I want after I finish something that I've put my heart
