Quilt Therapy

I was in desperate need of some stress management the other day, so I decided to load this disappearing nine-patch on the frame just so I could quilt a few rows. Before I knew it, two hours had passed and the quilting was done! I followed up with a bit of therapeutic hand stitching on the binding. In no time the quilt was finished and I was feeling MUCH better! There really isn't anything better for relieving stress than spending a little time with a needle and thread.

Quilting Therapy is the best - especially straight lines where the time just seems to pass by. It is the reason why I quilt.

And how could you be stressed working on such a bright cheerful quilt.

WOW that is a stress reliever for sure...love the colors, brings a smile just looking at it! I love doing bindings...especially when stress is bearing down on me! It is relaxing for me, just the slide of the needle thru the fabric does it for me! Have a great week, hopefully less stress!

Good for you ... like Mary Lou Weidman's quilt says "I feel like a witch when I don't get to stitch" ...

GREAT colors!
