I never thought I would want to make a quilt, ever. That is, until I saw this quilt block. Really, I have been afraid to try quilting because every quilter I talk to says the same thing, "Oh, I used to sew bags and clothes and things for the house, but now all I want to do is quilt." And then as they start to giggle, almost every one of them has said, "My husband has to practically beg me now to even sew a button back on his clothing".
ACK!!! After hearing this SO many times, I really became afraid to do quilting of any kind. I really enjoy sewing bags and pillows and clothes and to think of not having the desire to do these things anymore really is scary to me!
As scary as it is, I have decided to put fear on the back burner and go for it. Maybe it doesn't have to be either or, I have gone against the grain in so many other areas, why not with this too? I'm going to make one quilt. Just one and see how it goes. I made my first block last night and I'm already finding myself at work obsessing over the next one. This could be a long road ahead.
In other areas, a friend of mine gave me some rhubarb this last weekend and I just had to share the recipe for this strawberry rhubarb pie (hi Dad). It turned out sooo good my husband even said it was better than his mamma's.
