I had a small epiphany over the past 48 hours. I make (bed) quilts for the simplicity of it. I make them because they are practical too. I do not have, nor do I really desire to have, the discipline it would take to machine quilt (in a beautiful manner) something big.
I am much better at working on art type quilts...wall hangings if you will. For some reason, the quilting I do on those is much much better. It is probably the size.
I DO like hand quilting each night, while watching TV. It is my "knitting" and is relaxing. Since I currently have two large hand projects going, I don't NEED to worry about making large, practical, bed quilts.
So...rambling on here...I think I am going to go a different direction for the rest of this year. I am going to make art quilts and dolls and maybe an art journal with 'stuff' in it and pickled people and work on that big tree project.
