It’s Always A Good Day…

“Continue working on your “quilt.”  It will tell you something about the life you’ve lived and the things you’ve come to value.”

~Sue Bender, Plain and Simple Journal


It’s always a good day when the quilting is complete enough to roll the edge of the quilt!  The Shadow Box Diamond In a Square Wall Hanging has a lot of nice feather work.  This weekend, the quilt looked like this.


Now it looks like this…rolled on one end and small enough to change to the shorter sticks on the right and on the left of the quilt!.


I am still taking in the new quilt room, the smell of mowed grass mixed with fresh paint and musty carpets from the garage!  It smells like something fresh and new and old all at the same time!


This is what the back of the quilt looks like so far.  The lighter colored thread on the black fabric is looking pret–ty nice!

Hope the pieces of your life are coming together today!

  1. Molly, you’ve given me a new appreciation of quilts and quilting. I have a friend who quilts and referred her to your site. Thanks for your continued support of The Brancatelli Blog. Robert

    • Thanks for your thoughts, Robert. I can say the feeling is mutual in reading your blog. I really enjoy reading about your life in such a fast paced city like New York. I am very impressed with your prose pieces each week and the amount of creativity you have with the youtube clips and pictures to help shape your piece. It’s excellent! Marshall McLuhan coined the phrase, “The medium is the message.” I agree with Mcluhan, and I think your blog is very attuned to the times these days…in your writing and in the presentation! I find your writing to be both inspiring and enjoyable at the same time. Keep going!
      Wishing you the very best on the upcoming school year, Molly
      P.S. I have been reading the book you recommended to me a few months back: Lessons of the Masters by George Steiner. It is a very interesting read! thanks for the suggestion! I appreciate it very much!


  2. That’s very kind of you, Molly. I truly appreciate the support. I work hard at it. I usually put in about 15 or so drafts for each blog, sometimes more. But here’s the thing: I love doing it. Now, if I can only figure out a way to make $…! Glad to hear about Steiner. He’s the real thing. Robert

    • Now I know why your posts are so thorough and concise, Robert, because of the hard work you put into each of them! That’s good to know. A thought on how at least one blogger earns money could be to check out Jon Katz’s blog at Jon posts for free, but has a subscription place and a suggested fee to support his time blogging. If you think of other ways to earn money that work via blogging, please let me know, as I would like to learn them, too!
      All the best, ~Molly
