Texture



That's what quilting is about. Of course color and design are factors. But for me quilting is really textural. Today I started working on a shower present for QFF Wayne's son. The first step in making this casserole carrier is simply to quilt two fabrics. Maybe it's because I haven't had much studio time lately, but today was joyous. The process of quilting and laying in rows of stitches after rows of stitches was satisfying. Tomorrow I'll continue working on this and put the studio in order in preparation for leaving town for a couple of weeks (doing a Rhine River cruise - woo hoo!)(missing the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild retreat - boo hoo).
