For the last few weeks, I have been reading about the history of quilts.
I am at a point where I do not know what I want to do next when it comes to quilting.
So, I am dabbling and trying different things.
A little bit of improvisation, a bit of artistic, folk art, a bit of embroidery and hand-stitching…and on and on.
All of the quilts I have made have been specific to family members; things they like, and bits of their story.
I had free cut some strips and decided to make it a block to tell about one of my grandchildren.
He was born on a stormy Sunday in October.
I thought of the poem: Sunday’s Child is Happy and Wise.
My embroidery is just basic.
I have been studying Sue Spargo, but I am still a novice at this.
I also added a heart made from a piece of my dad’s plaid shirts.
I was thinking of embroidering my grandson’s initials on the heart and writing the date of his birth on the left bottom corner.
Like I said, I do not know where I am going with this.
I am just trying out different things.
