Quilting on a Snowy Morning
On a snowy morning, a group of quilters braved the weather to gather and share their latest projects. What a mix of colors and techniques we had. Linda was hand quilting a gold and blue piece in the Hawaiian style. Anna was trimming her emerald gre en and raspberry table runner of traditional pieced stars and Irish chain. Pam shared her hand dyed silks, soft blues, reds and green on a sunset yellow background. She had made these into scarves. Becky was attaching the binding on a couple of machine quilted lap quilts in soft hues of greens & tans. And Mary's quiltof blues, greens, and grays had been machine quilted just in time for her son's Christmas. Lucy and Molly were knitting socks. I glanced out the window, there was the white blowing snow and you could almost feel the cold winds. Inside, it was warm and dry, with all these vivid colors and laughter; people sharing their passion. I remembered why I quilt.
