I have sewed for many years and in the past made very simple quilts. Then years elapsed when I did not sew at all however, since the beginning of this year however I have made quilts to help me get through a difficult period in my life. I am amazed at how much serenity comes from just sitting quietly sewing and piecing quilts. I quilt because it makes the troubles of the day disappear and it has a double reward of allowing me to make quilts as gifts that can be enjoyed by others.
My favourite quilt this year was not technically brilliant but it was full of memories of my childhood in the fifties and it was made for my only grandchild Lily who lives an ocean away but who is close to my heart every day.
