3 Quilts this weekend
I finished my first quilt that uses rusty steel as the batting or innards. It is 12" by 10" by 1.5". I really like it and it fits the current SAQA definition of a quilt. Encouraged by Beth's example I have submitted it as entry for Volusia Wrapped in Fiber. It is a last minute thing. I am not holding my breath on this entry.
Then I finally started my quilt for Interpret This! I debated and debated how to interpret this last picture in the challenge. Truth be told, I am tired of trying to produce a quality work of art each month based on a picture that has no meaning for me. Not that I haven't grown tremendously this last year because of the challenge. I am just ready to move on to other things. But finally, as I was taking a nap on Saturday, I decided how I was going to finish in a way that I am excited about. I immediately got up and got started cutting and sewing.
Last quilt category for the weekend. I was asked on Sunday if I had a quilt I could donate to a family I don't know as a Christmas present. My first response was, "Are you INSANE?!" But I was at church and feeling the spirit of the the Lord at this Christmas season and I remembered a quilt that I did have that could be given. So, with a wish of joy to the family, the quilt is being delivered today. It will serve the function for which it was made. I had the opportunity to use the talent/skill that I enjoy to serve someone in need. How wonderful that someone thought to ask me.
