So, I was watching a video last night and it made me wonder about quilting. The video was on how to make a jelly racer quilt. Many of the comments and blogs I found said they like the pattern cause it allows you to do a quick quickly and get it finished.
This got me to thinking. I quilt for relaxing and stress relief so do I really want to approach it as something I see as wanting to get started and out of the way quickly? Doesn't it defeat the idea of quilting being a hobby that you do because you enjoy? After some thought about it during my morning commute I realize it has it's place, I think.
As quilters wherever we hear someone is sick or struggling we immediately think "they need a quilt" yet there are times life it too hectic to get one done right then. So in that instance I can see myself making a jelly racer quilt. In fact, I think I'll try one tonight and see if they really do sew up in about an hour. Hard to imagine.
