It is easy to be distracted by life. The little things of everyday, but the planning and work that goes into the big events too can totally prevent us from spending time for ourselves and our hobbies. Things like babies being born, graduations and proms, weddings, even moving houses, can completely remove us from things we are passionate about. Even though these things are positive and exciting, they are transitions that can be filled with stresses too. I think that is why they are often celebrated and commemorated with quilts. How many of you made your first quilt for a baby? Tonight is my last Spring Concert for the school band. They do a thing in this piece where one by one all the Seniors put down their instruments and walk off the stage. I have cried through this number every year and now that my daughter is one of the Graduating class I am almost in tears thinking about it now. Yikes. But she is getting a new quilt for going away to college next year – of course. Tomorrow is the Royal Wedding, and our Crazy Quilt club will have tea at the monthly meeting, how many of us have made a r special quilt as a wedding gift? If you made one and want to share we would love to see pictures.
So life’s big events are quilted. Why? because the making is therapeutic and guarantees that we take a few minutes to think. The end result is a long-lasting reminder of the Happiness and love that led to the big event, and when the stresses of life get to us they are a hug from a friend that you can take with you no matter where you go in life. Not to mention they are beautiful.
No matter what your skill level there is a quilt project you can complete to celebrate the big event. We are here to help – with new fabrics arriving shortly, and projects patterns or workshops for every occasion and skill level. We are here to help make your big event extra special. Congratulations!!
