I've often thought about how the quilting resurgence has created a whole industry for quilters. Not seamstresses or the casual sewing enthusiasts. But quilters!
When I started quilting 30 years ago, I remember it was a little difficult to find 100% cotton fabric. And there were no "lines" of coordinating fabrics to create that perfectly coordinated quilt. You bought a piece of blue fabric with a tiny floral design and tried to find something, anything, that would go with it!
So I was thinking about how the quilting world has grown to such huge proportions, and I wondered what brought YOU on the quilting trail?
Is it fabric?
Patterns? Magazines?? The challenge of quilting??
How did you become interested in making quilts? What keeps your interest? What challenges you? I'd like to know. As this is the week the Quilting World awaits every new line of fabric and every designer shares their latest and greatest at Quilt Market, I'd like to hear a little from you. Share a little insight with all of us.
