back to the future
This is a corner of my most recently finished project, a feathered star wallhanging. I've only posted a corner photo because it takes me back 30+ years to when I first discovered hand quilting and the beautiful designs that created such a look. It drew me in like no craft had ever done. The result was jettisoning all others and pouring my creative devotion into quilting. Then, like now, my muse is quenched with this art form. Sure, I still cross-stitch and could knit, crochet, macrame, make stuffed animals and dolls, but I have no desire to do any of that. Not since quilting took over and gave me a whole new crafting life. If I quilt until I'm 150, it won't be enough time to make all the projects and try all the patterns that have tantalized me; I never felt that way about any other pastime.
