it was only slight tweaking that the farmhouse quilts needed. and yesterday i realized what it was....i needed to double the quilting lines. it puckers more. it drapes better. it makes all the uneven little patches even more charming. and it means more hands on time with the quilt....more time to infuse it with happiness and love and warmth. i don't want to stop sewing, but i promised you photos, and here they are.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
