At WAQA we not only love to see the quilts at show and tell, but we also love to hear the stories behind them. What techniques were used? How you chose the colors? was the quilt made for someone special or just for yourself? How long it took? Hand pieced, machine pieced? Made from a pattern or from your own creativity? Hand quilted, machine quilted? Every quilt has a story, just like it’s maker.
Enjoy the images below from January sewing day and night, where members told of the stories behind their quilts -including a person who made two quilts whilst waiting for a long expected grandchild. The first quilt was judged too girly when the child turned out to be a boy, so another more boyish quilt was created.
