Esther's Occasional Quote For The Day
Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on my post below. I read and was touched by every thoughtful and sincere comment. There may only be a handful of us who are demonstratively keen to see the original quilt, but our devotion is intense and I hope it will be considered favourably by the current owners of the coverlet.
I can't explain why, but I just haven’t felt ready to start this quilt. During the pattern making process I felt so eager to make a start, but as the months have passed and thousands of you have made a start yourselves, I have found myself feeling 'not quite ready'. First it was a fabric issue and the real difficulty I was experiencing selecting a colour scheme. Now I think I am set to go with a scrappy theme. Many of you have opted for this and the blocks look wonderful. I can't wait to make a start myself now. I am making space in my sewing room and finishing up some pressing projects to make room for starting and catching up on my own heriloom.
I’m getting there, in my own time…
