I am often stumped for what to create for my weekly quilts. Most times I run into the sewing room on the final day of the week, and just “whip” something together. That’s why many of the works look so… I don’t know…unplanned? The best ones are the ones that had some real forethought.
Jeanne Williamson Ostroff started the weekly quilt idea. Her quilts are online here. Martha Gilbert, a very talented quilter in my Baltimore guild, worked on a weekly 8×10 series of quilts at a retreat we both attended in 2006, and after looking through her works, I was convinced to do mine. Her gallery is here.
