Diary Quilt Tuesday
Diary Quilt Block 1
So I am now 1 week into my diary quilt. I have already learned a thing or two...edit, keep it simple, don't try to put it all into one block. It is going to be interesting to try and fit everything into a 6" block and at the same time tell a story!
So for this one the first thing that the word "birthday" suggests to me is cake, balloons and when I was little, every girl wore a party dress to any birthday party.
Another thing I want to do is to try and not just write on the quilt, that is not to say that won't happen! A part of the reason to do this is to try and be aware and more creative. I have some old tape measures and decided to use them to put on my birth date. I think it worked out pretty well.
Here is a "vintage" picture of me when I was 3 in a party dress. I can remember hating that dress. The petticoat scratched at the waist, but as you can see it was polka dots! I loved the dress for that and that alone! Gee what's with those bangs???
Last night was our holiday party at Penn Oaks Quilt Guild. We are also celebrating our 25th anniversary. Every member got a pin as a gift, we played strip quilto (like bingo) ate some yummy snacks and had a good time. Congratulations Penn Oaks!
