Just a quilter hoping to be as seasoned a quilter as my Grandmother and Mother. I try to live my life simply and simply live.

This quilt was made for my beautiful Niece Melony in Colorado.  It has several names to its pattern, one being the Charleston.  The one that stands out for me tho is the hugs and kisses pattern; for all the hugs we've missed in the years not seeing one another and a great big smoochie to her heartfelt memories.  Love You Melony    This is a pic of my quilting room on a breezy cool day!

Quilting Seasons

I took my new blog page title from some encouraging words from a group I belong too on (in)courage.  A few of the women have talked about being in a "season" of their life.  Which is where I am at and feel I have always been in; just didn't know how to describe it till now! What I am going to do is talk about the quilts I am doing and why that quilt/quilting is important to me.

I watched a video on community today and how it can break or it can heal you.  And I wondered how I might have been doing this all along my adult life.   What can I do to create community for myself and en (in) courage it in others.

I hope you will follow along with each quilt I post and why it was made..  Quilting for others is my community and certainly staying in my groups online as I journey thru this season in quilts and quilting the season I am in.
