I quilt because I love too. I love going to my sewing room by myself (with a periodic visit from one of my twin granddaughters LOL) and working on something and relaxing and enjoying the end results.
I quilt for many reasons
It is a creative outlet for me, both my Grandmother and Father were painters,but I did not inheiret the talent of being able to see something and then have the ability to paint it.But I did inheriet color sense, when I am putting fabrics together,most people say," Oh interesting choice:,which we all know translates to",OMG, yuch!",untill the quilt is pieced and then it is,"Oh how beautiful and striking.
It also gives a sense of accomplishment, at the end of the day I can see what I have done.
It can also be a comfort,when I was going through a very difficult divorce, My BFF,told me to make a quilt just for me.Pick out the colors that I like,pick out a pattern that I love and make a present for myself!
It also a declaration of love, I only give one to people who mean a lot to me.And hopefully they appreciate the meaning.
