I Remember…January 26, 2007
I remember the first quilt that I saw that made me want to learn to quilt. It was in Nashville, Indiana. A friend and I were in Brown County that weekend to enjoy the fall leaves and were sightseeing in Nashville, a quaint village with artists’ shops, gift shops, and great little restaurants. This was 1975 or ’76.
The quilt was hanging in one of those shops up high in the log rafters. It was in muted tones of browns, greens and golds, maybe a little burgandy thrown in there too (hey, it’s my memory, so it can be any color I want, right?!) As I remember, it was a Double Nine-Patch. I was in awe of it and decided then and there that I wanted to learn to quilt like that. I had no idea that it would take me 30 years to get that point.
