I woke up this morning eager to change the clocks and to change out the Halloween decorations. I made this little Halloween quilt years ago. Very precise, with sashings Polyester batting. Stitch in the ditch quilting. Or, maybe I just used the buttons as tacking, Still, I can see some of the quilter I would become. Bright colors. Movement.
I can picture myself making it. Probably using a Singer machine, which I still have. Cutting out each individual piece, or maybe I used a rotary cutter. I was so happy when the rotary cutter/ruler/cutting mat came along and when I could finally afford all three. And a book with directions about using them. The idea then was to use this new technique to make traditional quilts. I want to see whether I still have that book. I'm guessing not.
The Thanksgiving replacement is a turkey quilt, made with the embroidery machine, very different. I'll post that picture tomorrow, although you've probably seen it before.
