Quilty Confessions

Blasting thru my quilting blogs I have come across many with Ten Quilting Confessions.

So here are mine:

1. Square up what !~! If my quilts were square, people wouldn't believe they were mine.

2. Prewash is for reds. The rest can take their best shot !~

3. I am ALL about wonky. The wonkier the better, I want it to be known that it wasn't supposed to be anything other than what it is.

4. I wouldn't know a designer or a fabric line if they marched thru my living room with a Drum & Fife corps leading the way.

5. I seldom know what the end product will look like when I begin the process.

6. I prefer that one dimension be no more than 44-45 inches, makes the backing easier.

7. Cutting up clothing and using it is how I started my quilting journey-I continue to do that.

8. Tying quilts is So Much Easier than trying to quilt them on my little Singer.

9. I wonder if the people to whom I have sent quilts actually use them or if they get tossed on a shelf...

10. How long will the fun last ?~!

Hope to see some of your quilting confessions too.


  1. I hope your fun will last a long, long time.

  2. If I could keep all quilts to 44" or less on one edge, life would be so much easier! :) I haven't tied a quilt in a while, it's a really great method and something I should do again.

  3. I have to tell you... my quilts are up. Well, one of them is anyway. If I could put the second one up I would but, the AC is in that window. When summer comes to it's inevitable end... I will use the second quilt when the AC unit is no longer required. Love them both. And, love you even more.
