Welcome to Quilters, Books and Bindings
I am Miki Willa, and I am very excited about this new quilting group. We will be reading and sharing books we love. Then, we will be creating quilts reflecting our impressions of some aspect of the story. Our timeline will be about three months per book to start. We may adjust that as we go along. We would love to have you come and join us if you are a quilter and a reader. Just leave a comment and I will get in touch with you.
I have been quilting for about two years in my current incarnation quilting life. I quilted about thirty years ago, then stopped for a very long time. I thought I would be a strictly traditional quilter when I started again, but I find myself drawn to all kinds of quilting now. I have made traditional quilts, modern quilts, art quilts, and I enjoy piecing, applique, and what I call the "what if I tried this" method of quilting.
I love reading, as well, and I am looking forward to the challenge of creating a quilt based on what I am reading.
Our first book is The Lover's Knot by Clare O'Donohue. I can't wait to get started.
