Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories - Crafts - 2013

Christmas = Quilts!

Besides being a genealogy lover; I am also a lover of quilts. I have been sewing since I was a little girl and my mother & her mother taught me the basics. They were both very talented and could make anything with a needle and thread. As I grew I learned more and more about sewing by hand & by machine. When we were first married we lived in the Buffalo, NY area and I was introduced to quilts. As soon as I saw the beautiful colors & textures I wanted to try sewing them myself. I took lessons and the more I learned about quilting, the more I wanted to quilt.

Since then I have given many quilted gifts to friends & family, especially at Christmas time. This year I am making a quilt for my husband & myself. It won’t be done in time for December 25th but there is no hurry in making a quilt. The time that goes into the creation of a quilt is a part of its value.
