Inspiration

19 Sep

I just wanted to say “thank you,” again to all the people who complimented my work on the Strip Club quilt today. I had so much fun making it and I’m glad everyone enjoyed it. I’m truly in gratitude of the wonderful responses. If I had been told years ago that I would be not only making quilts but designing and appliquéing my own patterns, I would have thought you were joking.

I wanted to talk a little bit about the quilting bug and how deeply it has burrowed into who I am. As I told Rose Ann just a couple weeks ago, I love working at this shop and I love all the staff and customers I feel so privileged to work with on a near-daily basis. When I started this job, however, I knew nothing of quilting and had very little knowledge or practical application sewing (save a couple of impromptu Halloween costumes here and there). The time I’ve spent here has taught me so very much not only about quilting, but about friendship, about helping others, about helping myself. I can honestly say that I will never be the same after all the amazing people I have met and have experienced.

So again, thank you to all the wonderful people out there. You are what makes this job fun and exciting. You  inspire me to do what I do.
