Me & My Dream Quilts
Years ago I had a Dream I dreamed of a fundraising project that would define and bond a community as they stepped into a difficult leg of a journey of hope & faith. A journey which would take ten years, some would step to see our Lord during this journey and some would step up to Jesus.
I dreamed of a quilt project, a fundraising project, A quilt of Common threads, threads everywhere, yet so common, we fail to recognize them, the threads of a screw which holds many things in place, from your car door to the thread on the toothpaste cap. The thread count of the bed-sheet implies how long it may or may not last. The higher the thread count the higher the price tag.
A quilt of blind stitches, a blind stitch is hidden, obscure, from view, but a stitch indeed. Usually a blind stitch is a finishing stitch, one used on the hem of a pant leg or the binding of a blanket or quilt. Transparent to the human eye. Without the Blind stitches the frayed edges of the garment would be exposed to daily wear and tear.
Common Threads & Blind Stitches the Quilt
At the beginning of Kelly Rae Roberts Flying class I began to dream. Yes, I dreamed of a quilt again, this time ... a quilt pieced together, separate diverse blocks that became one block (the quilt) as our class did in the spring & summer of 2010.
Bond & Respond
While I was dreaming up this quilt project I read Anna's blog and found she too was working on a quilt project of her own, so I thought WHY NOT and here we are. This week Anna introduced Isabela's Argle Quilt Block Template and ETSY shares Anna's story. After only scanning the Etsy story, I quickly made a big mind boo, boo and compared myself and my dreams to these two women. Remember , Kelly warned us about this and I am happy to say I am in the process of recycling those negative thoughts into positive thoughts. I have one of my many dream assignments (2 create a global quilt) 4 Kelly (our teacher who inspires), that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Find the quilting instructions here. Will U help?
