If you are a subscriber to my newsletter, you have already seen this, but if this is your first visit, this is a lovely story!
The story of a fantastic quilt I made together with a group of my Romanian quilting friends and my three sisters : it won a prize in Houston! It’s been 10 years since we created that masterpiece.
Every so often, I get asked if there’s a pattern for this quilt or if I’ll make it, and my usual response has always been NO. But recently, I stumbled upon the photos of our entire journey back in 2013.
I was surprised to find that I had documented this experience with so many pictures. While browsing through the images, I didn’t remember the long hours of hand sewing or the hard work; instead, feelings of gratitude, excitement, and joy flooded back to me. I remembered the dedication, friendship, and the incredible teamwork.
I spent the last few days creating a short video out of those photos to share this amazing experience with all of the friends who were a part of this project and with you!
For you, this video illustrates all the significant steps in creating this quilt. But for us, it represents three to four months of our lives dedicated to this unique project.
While I used to believe I could never write a pattern for this quilt (I should make a new one), these days, I can’t help but wonder: what if I could help other quilters experience the same joy and fulfillment we did?
Here’s the video; I hope it brings a smile to your face and maybe even sparks some inspiration.
