I have discovered that quilters are very giving people.They make quilts for those in need, for friends, for new neighbors, babies, showers, friends of friends, for fund-raisers, to make a public statement and for each other as a sign of support, care and love.
Quilting is an expensive art. Fabric and supplies continue to increase in price and the amount needed for a decent size quilt is quite substantial. Then there is the time. And equipment. And yet we continue.
I think I am like most quilters in that I quilt because I must. Just like a painter must paint, quilters must quilt. That our art can then be shared in various ways is a bonus.
These will go in the mail tomorrow to Jaye over at Artquiltmaker for a donation quilt she is making.
This was not my final layout for the blocks, just testing different fabrics and getting the correct number cut. I did end up swapping some squares out.
When I pieced light to dark it was purely random. Once I was sewing rows together I started to pay more attention so while still random, there weren’t a lot of repeats next to each other.
Having fun on the Journey, Jackie
