Quilt With Us

After finishing the wedding quilt and working morning, afternoon and well into the evening, day after day, I made a decision and that was that I was never going to hand quilt another quilt but would learn more about machine quilting/free motion quilting. I do however have one more quilt that is about 75% completed and so I will need do this one more. It is for my grand daughter and since she is only 15 I will have it put away as a wedding quilt for her too. Since the Bears Paw quilt was finished (fall 2010), I have not done any more hand quilting but have worked to perfect my FMQ and enjoy it so much.

Prairie Quilter said it so well.  And as long as you are enjoying what you do, make the best choices for yourself; the quilts will all be loved and appreciated.  Before I retired, a good friend told me to make time to play everyday.  Words of wisdom to be taken seriously by all of us.

Any quilt made with love is a winner in my book, whether machine quilted, hand quilted or tied.

 Jodi you have hit the nail on the head. You realize that you are not getting any younger and yet you want to be able to accomplish more. I have not regretted the decision.

It's a tough decision! You have my sympathies. Sometimes the decision is made for us. For me it was made by the stroke I had 6 years ago. For other it is just facing a reality that there are only so many days and hours left and we must make the most of them. But that shouldn't stop you from making beautiful quilts with the free motion quilting.
