A labor of love

I think one of the main reasons I love quilting is because it is such a Labor of Love! It does take a lot of hours and work, but the whole time you think about the person that you are giving the project to. That is what drives you to sew and sew, and sew some more.
I just finished the main part of the quilt I am working on. I am exhausted, I should have taken a bigger break between all those hours, but I just want to make sure that I get it done before Mother's Day. That is when we will be giving it to our friend. How grateful I am for a complete stranger  ( and owner of  a quilt shop, and now my boss ) offered to give Lauren some free Quilting classes. After two classes, she asked me why I didn't quilt, I told her that it was too hard, I would just probably just keep tying my quilts, like I always did. Of course that wasn't good enough for Lauren, and so she helped me do my first pieced quilt. It wasn't long after that, my neighbors began helping me and well...look at me now, I am hooked on it! I hope all my friends and loved ones that receive anything I make for them, will know it was Handmade with lots of LOVE!
Good night dear friends!
