My friend Margaret and I started a running joke a few years ago that we were making all these quilts for our "trunk show." At the time, I had no intentions of doing any trunk shows. Well, evidently I can predict the future because I have been asked to do two trunk shows in February of this next year! I am both excited and nervous to do an official trunk show. Now, don't get me wrong...I am not afraid to talk! Anyone that knows me, knows that :) I have taught lots of classes and have shared in quilt guild lots of times. However a "trunk show" would indicate that I have a "trunk" full of quilts.
Hence, the mountain. I have been much more prolific in the past year. Knowing that I have a deadline and lots of ladies waiting to see my work, has really inspired me to get crackin' on projects that have been sitting around in a state of progress for quite awhile. I have also continued to take classes and finish projects from those classes.
My husband recently said, "What are you going to do with all of these quilts?" and I said, "I will continue making them until I can't make them anymore! After I am gone, the kids can take whatever they want, and you can donate the rest to charity." I just love making them. I do give them away for baby gifts, graduations, etc. but for the most part, for now, I will continue to compile my "mountain" and my grandkids will continue to climb when they come to visit their "Grammy."
