History Day Quilting

On Saturday I volunteered for the day at the historical society's History Day - I quilted! Yeah, some  hardship, right? :-)


I enjoy this event; it's my 3rd year for doing this, and I look forward to it each year. As folks mosey along past my little spot in the building, I hear a variety of stories. Some will tell me about a quilt that they were given that some great grandmother made; another will talk about a beloved ancestor who quilted from old shirts and dresses; still others talked about wishing they could quilt or that they wished they had the patience for quilting. Such variety!

I actually did have one woman take me up on the offer of sitting down with me and trying a few stitches. Wow! She took out all her stitches, but I was so pleased that she was willing!


I'm thinking that Long Road Home will be a long winter's quilting.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
