    Sharing my Quilts - Day SEVEN!!

    Ok! Last Day! I want to thank you all for the positive input and encouragement you've given me this week. Quilters are the most awesome group of people, and I've really enjoyed sharing with you.

    Today is quick and simple. Holidays!

    A couple years ago, after we moved into our "retirement nest", I met a couple ladies in my neighborhood who saw one of my quilts on the wall and asked me "did YOU do that?? Can you teach US to do that??" Within a week my sewing room was setup like a little classroom with two additional sewing spaces squeezed in. What a blessing for me to share this with them and see them TAKE OFF! One of them has a table runner, wall hanging or quilt on nearly every surface in her home, and has made and shared treasures with nearly everyone in her family. You can see the glow of the light in her sewing room sometimes late into the night! The other friend has discovered panels! And ALL you can do with panels! And she also decorates for EVERY holiday! EVERY. HOLIDAY. She's awakened in me the desire to do my own scaled down version of this. LOL.

    So, here for my last day of sharing is a small sampling of the wall hangings we've made for a few holidays. You may recognize the October one as one of Jenny's creations. This was the first pieced project I taught my friend and she nailed it. Proud moment for me! Sometimes we embellish with buttons, rick rack, ribbon or just fancy stitches on the machine. But she's made sure I've had something hanging on my wall for nearly every event.

    Enjoy.....Holidays!

    Quilters make great comforters.

              How special that you helped friends become quilting friends too. You must be a fabulous teacher to bring them to their own enjoyment of quilting. It really is all about the teacher. So thank you!

              Thank you for showing all the lovely quilts and projects this week. I have enjoyed the show!

                Thank you so much for such a wonderful week of quilts. I've loved looking at your quilts over & over again throughout the week. What a joy it must have been for you to be able to teach your neighbors the art of quilting. How thrilling it must be for you to see her sewing late into the night & knowing that you helped her along the way. Thanks again for the wonderful show of quilts & beautiful stories that go with them.

                        I would LOVE to have someone to 'quilt' with. Thank you for another wonderful week of 'showing'. Your quilts are beautiful.
                        Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                            So lovely Libby! How inspiring you are! Neat story. Love the buddy quilts.
                            Rainy days are for quilting. Thank goodness I live in a rainforest! 😁

                              I've enjoyed your quilt show this week. I love panels. One can do so much with them. It's been nice to see you back on the Forum this week.
