This is my newest finished quilt. It is just a simple 8 x 10 inch blocked quilt in pretty fall/Christmas colors. It is in flannels and I purchased it as a kit from our local knit shop...Hickory Stick of Hannibal, MO. In fact a number of years ago this shop was one of the top ten shops in our nation. Many new shops have opened since and I have been to many but this nice sized shop in historic downtown Hannibal is a most for me to visit often. Sometimes I just go in to visit with the ladies and see what they are up to and tell them what I am doing. Sometimes I even take my finished projects in to show them off.
Quilting, to me, is like painting with fabric. You are planning the color scheme, texture, media, design. I do oil paint and some watercolor, and I find that quilting, like painting and even knitting or other hobbies I have, is just a wonderful way to express my creativity and style.
