Have you made a quilt that left you overcome with joy?
I had a totally unexpected reaction to making my first picture piecing quilt. I was hooked from sewing the first three pieces together. At the end of the 1000 piece quilt, it was pinned to the design wall. I sat back to admire my efforts and took a deep breath and then another. This graduated into low, slow, deep oooohs and ahhhs… for 15 minutes! My hands were firmly on my face in disbelief that I could make the kind of quilt I had dreamed of making for a long time. Luckily I was the only one home, as to someone standing outside the sewing room door, it would have sounded like I was doing something else…
To say that I was addicted would be an understatement. Making these landscape quilts always gives me a jolt of euphoria—I just keep the noise down now!
