Time or Money is what I decided to title this hand-quilted traditional quilt.
I just took it off the bed to repair, revise, and add a label to it.
I began the quilt because my young daughter wanted me to buy a pastel fan quilt for her. I did not have the money to do so, so I told her that we could make one like it instead of buy it, but it would take a long time. A few years later, I finished the quilt, but my daughter had moved on to other interests. Because the quilt is enormous, touching the floor on three sides of our queen-sized bed, I’ve had it on my bed for over thirty years. I’ve replaced some fabric pieces because they fell apart and others because I think they detracted from the design. I now need to re-do the hand-quilting.
It is taking a long time, but I have so much time invested already, I must finish.
I gave myself a deadline by entering it in the local fair. I’ll post a finished picture when it is all done.
