Hues of Blues
Five years ago, when the ceramics shops started closing in our town, I knew I had to have another hobby to be able to ease into intelligently. Working with fabrics was nothing new to me, as I had sewn quite a bit during high school and college.
So off to the fabric shop I went and decided that my favorite color would be the basis for the new quilt.
Hues of blues became my favaorite quilt and will be till I'm carried off to heaven in it.
Mom painstakingly helpe me sash and bind this first quilt, then said, Rich, you are on your own for the next one.
Quilting is a life long journey, an art form and a way of expressing oneself artistically. It does not bother me, that being a man and a quilter can go hand in hand and provide so much enjoyment as a hobby.
