The Start of a New Best Friend

Today I had the urge to start a new quilt.  My big double Irish Chain has only around 50 hours of hand quilting left and I don't like the idea of not having a quilt to hand quilt. There is something about the whole process that make me feel like me.  I share my thoughts and feelings with my quilts one block at a time.  I quilt in the quiet hours and the busy noisy ones and I feel a stronger connection to my family.  I pour my love for them into each stitch.  I think about the future and the past I allow myself to indulge in thinking in a way that I never do else where in my life .  If you have not given hand quilting a go I hope you also get an urge one day.
Happy Friday.
