All My Quilts

I have been gathering up all my quilts that I own and have at home. I have been asked to do a couple "shows." It sounds fancier than it is. First is my small group (6 of us). We'll each have a day and take a turn to show each other what we've made, what our methods are, etc. My turn is tomorrow (Friday). And the second is at one of my guilds: five of us will show five quilts with the same kind of idea -- our method, our progress, our "art." I always put that in quotation marks when talking about my own quilting, because I don't feel qualified to call myself an artist. I'm trying on that label and seeing if it fits comfortably. So far I'm not sure. My turn at the guild is next week.

So, I gathered up all my quilts to see what I have here at home and what I should show. I was very surprised to see how many quilts I actually own! Many of these are small wall-hangings, but several are bed- and lap-size quilts. A couple of them aren't even in this pile, because they're on beds! Because I give away so many of the quilts I make, I was surprised this pile is as big as it is.


I also gathered up some photos of quilts that I have given away. It is fun to see what beauty in quilts has passed through this house. I sure love making and sharing quilts!

C! That's awesome! Hope you let us know when and where the shows are. You're a lot like me with knitting. I have given away much more than I have kept for myself.

Keeping/taking inventory is a most interesting effort . . .
