After losing my mother-in-law in 2012, then my Dad in 2013, I landed in a very deep and scary depression. I tried to keep moving forward but seemed like everything was too much effort.
After I lost Dad, I bought my Tiara, I found the repetition of FMQ soothing. But my quilts seemed without joy.
We also moved, twice. Selling, renting, buying again. And the stresses that come with these tasks wore me down.
Then, my Mom mentioned that she and a group of her friends had challenged each other to make a quilt out of MSQC's Block magazine. Using only what they had in their stashes.
That was the catalyst for me. Instead of trying to make each Quilt a masterpiece, I just wanted to make a pretty quilt. And I did.
Just going through the video tutorials was fun. I subscribe to the MSQC "BLOCK" magazine, so I have them to refer to for additional info and inspiration.
No, this is not a sponsored post, these thoughts are purely my own.
Stay tuned, another MSQC quilt to come!
