It’s been years since I’ve written about quilts. Back in the 80’s, I wrote two quilt books and dozens of articles about quilting in various publications including QUILT, Quilt World, and others. I took about a twenty-year break from quilting to finish my teaching degree (and got carried away getting two graduate degrees after that). When I couldn’t take it any longer, I got my machine back out, dusted it off, and visited my stash of fabric. It didn’t take long for the quilting bug to settle in once again.
The quilt above was started in the early 1980’s, but finished in January of 2006 (FINALLY!). Thanks to hubby Dean for clearing out his workshop long enough to take a full-size photo. This quilt is all hand-made: appliqued, embroidered, stitched, and HAND quilted. Here’s a close-up:
Enough about me – if you are a Michigan quilter, member of a quilt guild in Michigan, or a Michigan quilt shop owner (or have visited a great quilt shop in Michigan), please contact me via email and share your information.
