Empty Quilt Syndrome


All these quilts have been given away in the past couple of months. I have no more quilts waiting to be given away. Some of them I have had for a bit. I am nervous about mailing quilts so I waited until they could be hand delivered. One of the nicest compliments I have had is when I went to a friend's house and saw the quilt I made for her all crumpled up on the couch. You could tell it was being used. I have only one quilt top waiting to decide if I am going to put a border on it and one at the quilter's. What is a girl to do? I guess it is time to get back to quilting and make some more quilts. The house does seem a bit emptier without them around.



This is my block I made for the July Sew Modern Bee. Nicole wanted circles. She said the blocks would be used to make baby quilts, so circles made me think of snowmen, one of my favourite things. I have never made circles before and it was fun to try out a couple of new techniques.

You're not alone. I can't bring myself to mail quilts either. Besides, the joy of giving a quilt is seeing the reaction of the recipient. Although, now that I've delivered the 5 quilts this summer, I have at least that many projects in various stages. LOL.
