I’m so excited to share my Love of Sewing Mini Quilt with you today! When I was first given the challenge, I had to think it through for a while. Thankfully, inspiration struck, and each block in my mini symbolizes a part of sewing that I love!
I’ve been sewing since I was a girl, with 4-H roots and a seamstress for a mom, I’ve loved sewing since I can remember. A favorite pass time has always been walking the aisles of the fabric store to touch, feel and explore the possibilities that can be done with fabric. Even true when I was in college and didn’t have resources to start new projects!
I started quilting daily for my sanity – while pregnant with my fourth baby, the few quilts that I had made were inspiring and making me excited to start more quilt projects. During that time the quilting projects were the only thing that stayed done, day to day. And seeing my family snuggled up with quilts I’d made was so rewarding! And still is!
The blocks included in this mini quilt are special. The friendship star represents the many friends I’ve made through quilting. The second star, and the log cabin block represent the tradition of quilting, which I love and hope to pass on to the next generation. The spool represents all the thread, that I’ve used over the years! The heart is my love for sewing, and the alternating nine-patches are the links the draw us together.
