Retirement Hobby: Quilting

by Nancy
(Santa Claus, Indiana)


I am working my way through the remaining quilts which my Great Aunt Dora pieced, the tops. She did this 24/7 b/c she was an insomniac and pieced quilt tops almost up until her death at 95.


I have quilted about 6 or 7 quilt tops and restored 2 old quilts. It will take me several years to complete this task since I have plenty of time since I retired.

This hobby has given me a sense of purpose and meaning and I thoroughly enjoy it. I put a border on the quilt top, filling and backing.

Quilting

My great aunt Dora died in 1972. She sewed quilt tops literally every day and night b/f she died (she was an insomniac). I have quilted about 7 of her quilt tops and restored 2 old quilts. I am working my way through about 10 more. This will take me years to complete.
