Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
THOUGHTS ALONG THE WAY:
My year long project - "2013 - The Year of the Christmas Quilt" is gaining traction. Five quilts are done, the other 10 tops are ready and waiting! Here are the finished quilts on my husband's family chest. Ironically, I am having separation issues already. Since these quilts are a surprise for my family, I have told only my youngest daughter Rebecca, my fellow traveler down this quilting path, about the project. Daughter Jamie is soon to arrive with her family and I had planned to send the finished quilts and tops to a friend's house for maximum secrecy but I find I cannot be parted from them at this time. I am planning to take as many as are done to Illinois in October to another friend's house for storage until the giveaway day on Thanksgiving, bring the rest with me Thanksgiving weekend but I am also finding myself reluctant to separate the tribe! What a goof! More details to follow as the finished quilt pile grows!
