When I started this blog….
I only knew a couple of quilters — their quilts and methods were very different from mine.
My sisters were the only other people I knew who did hand embroidery.
When I shopped at the local quilt store for binding or backing fabric, the staff would make comments like “Why would you want to hand stitch a quilt?” or “I can’t believe you are using that old fabric.”
I didn’t know anyone who made quilts by hand, or shared my love of vintage fabric…….
but now I do, and it’s so nice.
Thank you, everyone.
