Starting a new quilt is not easy. It may be a bit easier if I can just take a book, copy a pattern and cut fabric and stitch and produce a duplicate. I can never do that. Even doing that ,needs a lot of effort.
The fact is that we really don’t need quilts, either the useful ones on beds, because they are more cheaper when I buy them or the useless ones on the walls because I have not got the master piece yet.
So why am I quilting? I ask my self this question very often.What motivates me to quilt?I don’t know.Of course one reason is my quilt club,fantastic group of friends whom I like, who motivate me to quilt, who ask questions about my recent work, which makes me guilty to say- none. Except that the real reason is, thinking makes me happy,getting lost in thoughts make me happy,taking a challenge makes me happy,forgetting all about this world around me makes me happy Getting lost inbetween colours makes me happy.Quilting is that retreat which is taking me away to a world which is not connected to every day world around me. I need many worlds. One for every mood.If Saturn and Jupitar can have several moons why cant I have several worlds?
