Now and again, especially when I’m mid-project and have said all I wanted to say about what I’m working on, I like to look at the Google news tab and see what’s new in the world of quilting.
This fun one came through first place:
Now, this is pretty impressive. Though 93 doesn’t seem as inconceivably distant an age to get to as it did once upon a time, it is still a feat of great willpower and quilting love to not only create a quilt at that age, but to win a blue ribbon for it! Clearly decades of knowledge and dedication helped her finish this feat. I guess I would like to win first prize for quilting when I am 93 years of age!

Here’s a talented lady who discusses a quilting process I am very familiar with, having successfully completed this same project for some old favorite T-shirts that my husband had collected for years. In any event, a good post to read if you are interested in making your own T Shirt quilt one day: “I know I am just giving the highlights here. I actually have a four post series on how to make a t-shirt quilt with really complete instructions. It is truly a step by step tutorial that you can access by clicking here, which will bring you to the fourth post.”

it’s posts like this that remind me of the integral role of quilts in the life of a community: “The Barn Quilt Trail was the first legacy project chosen for Decatur County. A brochure detailing in-county quilts on display will be available in the next week. To date, there have been 33 quilt blocks sold and others are currently being planned and made by the committee.”
All I can say is, ” yikes!”
