I was rifling through some deep sewing storage looking for a specific piece of fabric. I didn’t find it, but while searching happened across these “little quilts.” They were neatly folded and tucked away waiting to be rediscovered.
People who know I work with fabric almost always ask me if I quilt and I always say, “no,”when in fact I do quilt from time to time. What I mean when I say no, is that I do not quilt as my main creative outlet; I haven’t spent my lifetime perfecting my quilting skills like the artists whose magnificent creations adorn quilt shops and shows. Rather, I am a little quilter of small projects… offering happy little diversions from my more seriously focused fabric pursuits.
Each piece carries with it a memory, like small snapshot in time… oh yes, I remember when I made that…..
Part of what I like about blogging is the ability to connect with those who share my interests. We all have gifts and talents that are inspiring to others; I get inspired all the time by the awesome and amazing creativity of other bloggers. I think sometimes we take for granted what we know within our area of expertise; we incorrectly assume that everyone knows it. Of course, this is not really true; what may seem a small or insignificant thing to me might be a great assist to you and vice versa. With that in mind, I have decided to start taking sewing tutorial requests. If you have a special technique you would like demonstrated or if you have a question about anything related to sewing, please feel free to ask. If I know how to do it, I’ll publish it here in Sewville, that happy place, just beyond the rainbow. 🙂
