When I was a young child, I remember falling to sleep with the hum of my mothers treadle sewing machine running.  She wasn’t a quilter, she actually only used the machine to do repairs and small projects.  Still, it is relaxing and comforting to listen, as I quilt, to the rythemic hum of my bernina.  I never dreamt that my grandchildren would one day be comforted by the same sound.  I find that they love to sit in the same room as I quilt, sitting a few feet away playing barbies or reading books.

I find myself filled with a sense of pride, as well as joy, watching my

My son Zachery and grandson Jeremiah (8)

children and grandchildren choosing their fabric for their next blankie.

It is a gift to put together a palate of fabrics that will please sight as well as touch. I remember approximately 6 years ago, my grandson was a little over 2 years old, I was working in a quilt shop when my son and grandson came to visit me at work.  Jeremiah was overtaken by all the wonderful colors, he insisted his dad follow him through the shop as he explored.  Imagine my surprise as this little 2 year old came walking through the shop with a very large bolt of minkee for me to put into a quilt for him.  I wondered what his sense of colors would be, so I asked him to show me the other color fabrics he might like.  Jeremiah walked though the entire store and within a half an hour he had come up with a palate of fabulous colors.  He is now 8 years old, recently he asked me to help him make a quilt for his new baby that will be born in May.  I can hardly wait to have him choose from the fabrics I have in my studio. There is no doubt that he will choose minkee, it has almost always been a staple fabric in his quilts.

What a joy it is to be able to share something that gives me such joy with my precious grandchildren.  These are the times to build memories, perhaps they will be able to share these same experiences with their children and grandchildren.  You never know.  I’m sure my mother had no idea what that hum of the machine meant to me. do you have a special memory to share?

    My favorite childhood memory was summer get together at papas house. All the cousins would be playing on the hammock and trees while the adults were on the porch or in the screen house.

    Shooting pellet guns at cans or playing tag didn’t matter because there was so much love there.
