I want to introduce you to “Quilt Queen.” I just finished her on Friday, but thought sharing her with you today would be a great way to start the new year! She’s just 24″ square, and I created her as a way to experiment with different ways of using a glue stick in quiltmaking, which will be the topic of an upcoming “Out of the Toolbox” article in Quilting Arts magazine.
Queen Queen is definitely not part of the “quilt police”! Instead, she is kind and benevolent, eager to learn every new technique that is available to us today. She’s generous and willing to share with others, but also respectful and open to advice. She is encouraging and not critical. She’s curious and loves to experiment with new products and tools. Of course, she has a sense of humor and can laugh at her own mistakes! She goes to quilt shows, reads quilt magazines and peruses the quilt blogs so she can see other quilters’ work, but has her own sense of style. She is everything good and sweet. She is unique.
I think I want to be more like her in this coming year!
