reverb 10, day 6.

day 6: make.
(what was the last thing you made? what materials did you use? is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?)

The last thing I made was a quilt. Shocking, I know.  I used 100% cotton quilting fabric by Basic Grey (from their Origins collection).  Bright, bold colours that were out of my comfort zone.  I am happiest when I am creating something from nothing.  With quilting you start with a tiny scrap of fabric and from there you add onto it piece by piece, strip by strip.  When it is completed you have created a work of art.  Always an original, an expression of your love for whoever you give it to (if you are able to part with it).
My quilt on display at the Oakville Sewing Centre!
I always want to make more quilts and wish there were more hours in the day for me to squeeze in more time at my sewing machine.  I currently have several tree skirts on the go, and I definitely need to eek out some time this week to finish them off so I can pop them in the mail on time for Christmas.
