Sometimes I forget things. Take for example, the other day while talking to my son on the phone I was interrupted. I lost my train of thought and asked him what we had been talking about. Apparently I had been telling him how young I had been feeling. That although my chronological age is increasing my mind and body are doing well. He found this little incident quite funny.
The reason for making this quilt is similar. I realized after agreeing to teach this quilt that I gave the original one away. It seems in addition to being forgetful I am also an avid giver of quilts.
Without a class display, I dove into my scrap bins to remedy this problem. Thankfully most of my patterns scrap friendly. Even the ones that I design around a certain fabric line. I quilted it simply with stars and swirls. And bond it with a scrappy blue binding.
Now, barring anymore senior moments I’m ready for my Twinkle class. Plus when the class is over I’ll have another great quilt available to share with someone in need of a Quilty Hug.
I guess senior moments and avid quilt giving is not all bad.
