New Year, New Beginnings

Jewels in the Castle Wall by Jeanette Walton

Jewels in the Castle Wall by Jeanette Walton

The wonderful thing about a new year is that it encourages you to imagine and implement a new life. While I know you made your own resolutions and goals, I encourage all who read this blog to exhibit more. It just doesn’t make sense to spend so much time making a beautiful quilt and then to hide it in the closet. There are plenty of local shows that encourage beginning quilters as well as professionals. The Atlanta Quilt Festival held each year the first two weeks in August at the South Fulton Arts Center is one of those. Others include the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild which will hold its bi-annual show in May, and the Bulloch Hall Quilt Guild which will hold its show in March.

So to inspire you, here is Jeanette Walton’s blue ribbon quilt from the East Cobb Quilt Show. It was originally called Not Fast Food when it appeared in the show, but Jeanette renamed it  Jewels in the Castle Wall.

Quilters, get busy!!

Now that daylight savings time has started, we all have an extra hour of sunlight.  Why not make a really difficult quilt with that extra time?

Jeanette Walton‘s Not Fast Food will give you inspiration. This is an amazing quilt.

Not Fast Food recently won a Blue Ribbon in the East Cobb Quilt Show.
