“Make what you want to make,
and make it the way you want to make it”
I have mentioned quilting a time or two. I started quilting in 1988, shortly after we moved to the Pacific Northwest. I had inherited some quilt tops made by my great grandmother and decided I should learn how to quilt so I could finish them. About a year into this new adventure, I joined a quilt guild where I met some lovely women. We formed a small group and had so much fun improving our quilting skills. At one point, we made round robin quilts. We each had a center block that was passed around and added to by the others in our group. We even had our pictures and quilts published in a book about friendship and round robin quilting.
Fast forward to this morning, January 11, 2021. I stumbled on a Stay at home Round Robin quilting challenge. This time around, each person make the center and then adds a border each week. No swapping or passing around. A socially distanced round robin. Today is day one and everyone is sharing the blocks chosen for the center. I was sure I had an orphan block or two but when I went hunting, I remembered that pink fabric and decided to make a new center block. I used some sheep fabric in the center because it is fun.
It is a pretty adventurous schedule but I hope to keep up. I have been wanting to make more time for quilting. This will be just one of my quilt related intentions for 2021.
