Just a report on my 365 Day Quilt that I started about a month ago. The idea is from a fellow blogger, very talented quilter/designer, Leanne. Go to http://www.leanneshouse.typepad.com/ to find out all about it.
I started on my 52nd birthday. I am thinking what a wonderful legacy to leave my family. I would love to have a quilt documenting a year in my grandmother or great-grandmother's life. I have been struggling with what to journal as day to day activities seem trivial some days. Go to work, come home, watch tv, handwork, cook supper etc. So, I am including some history in each day. What my dad said about something, or what my mother quoted on some subject. What I remember about grandparents or great grandparents. I think this might be more informative and interesting. Also I may not report EVERY day. I think I will not be able to spend time doing this every day so a day missed will not be a catastrophe. Also, I will iron an entire strip to the freezer, journal on it, and then cut it afterwards and then I will have the appropriate length needed for that particular day. Strips of antique tatting or piece work etc. will be placed between the days to add interest. I have all my supplies in a Moda tin box. So hany even to take with me if I want to.
Thanks for visiting. See you next time.
