Day 30 – Amish Wedding

February 11, 2008

Traditional Quilts to paper pieceNow this is a quilt that I have not seen in a very long time. But right now I am feeling a close connection to it. It was one of the projects from our 3rd book, and we really needed help from friends to finish all of the quilts on time. Another small secret – we were sent two contracts, and so we were righting book #3 and #4 at the same time. No problem, we could handle that. Well, on top of the three children we already had, I was pregnant. No problem, I could handle that. Until I became one of those special people who had morning sickness day and night for 9 months. Suddenly, there was a lot I couldn’t handle.

So why do I feel a special connection to this quilt? Because while Cori was enjoying all of the festivities in town this weekend, I was lying here feeling like I did back when we did this quilt. Nope, I am not pregnant, but this past week my daughter and I both came down with Croup. And the worst part of lying in bed sick, is thinking of all the things you have to do, and all the things you want to do. I have a fresh stack of quilt tops in my studio that I am itching to start on…and I kept thinking about them all weekend.
When Cori and I design projects, we want to jump in and get our hands on them as fast as we can. It can be hard to hand your idea’s over to someone else, and let them get to see the quilt develop. But to meet all of our deadlines, we called upon some of our good friends who live a little west of here. Bev and Laura are great friends, who have amazing quilting skills. Bev pieced this little quilt, and Laura pieced a little school house…which I think I will show you tomorrow.
