Why We Quilt

This weekend, I went to a small regional quilt show in Houghton Lake, Michigan. The artist statement for this hand pieced, hand appliquéd, hand quilted quilt, made by Connie MacAllister, made me smile.

MacAlister -

It said: I made this quilt while waiting for our new house to get done. It helped me keep almost sane. All done by hand in 2003.

Sometimes it's as simple as that, isn't it? Keeping almost sane.

This quilt reminded me of Becky's hand piecers on the Quilting forum--who are currently working on lemoyne stars. I thought they'd appreciate it, so I took a couple detail shots for them.
