A New Year’s Quilt
Did you have a good holiday? Was it terrible? Did people fight or did people laugh? Some of both, maybe? Did you eat too much or did you practice some “noImgoodthanks” on some days? Did you find a balance or did you need to say to heck with balance? Did you sew or was your sewing machine dark?
No matter what you did or didn’t do, I hope that you had at least one moment in the past week that made you go, “You know, this place is a pretty nice place to be, sometimes…”
In the spirit of the “Why Don’t You…” column in Quilty magazine — Jan/Feb 2013 issue to hit newsstands SO SOON!!! — I was thinking about the idea of a New Year’s Quilt. What if you did one? What if you made a quilt every year in the first month of the year and it was…a vote of confidence. A goal, immortalized in fabric. Just an idea. Or a gift.
What’s she sewing? Maybe it’s a New Year’s Quilt.
This is a painting by Edmund Blair Leighton. Thanks, EBL. Can I get a copy?
