Quilts are personal. Bonnie Hunter's quilt calls to mind her time at the Grand Hotel. It helps preserve her memories of teaching and visiting. You can tell it gives her joy from her writing.
My quilt has the same basic structure and almost the same pattern, and is completely different. My quilt will reflect my memories of this mystery; the excitement of the clues, the fun of choosing colors, the joyous rhythm of sewing, the amazement when things turned out right, the enjoyment of sitting at the computer with a cup of tea looking at everyone's progress. I will also remember using all these great machines that I've collected. The fabric scraps remind me of other quilts I've made and fabric I've gathered, from conversation prints to Liberty of London. These are my colors, my fabrics, my choices. This is my quilt.
Now...how am I going to quilt it?
