Retirement and the joy of quilting

Retirement. What are you going to do with yourself? How are you going to stay busy? Are you going to travel? All well meaning questions, but not to worry. Now I can quilt as much as I want. All the ideas floating around in my head can finally see the light of day.


This is the first to come to the light of day as my work space is taking place. The gift certificate for retirement went right to the quilt shop!


The appliqué work on each corner is cut in one piece overplayed over each corner and hand appliquéd into place.

Size: 54×54
Finished: 2009

Quilt square around the compass is a modified “A Design in geometrics” published in the Kansas City Star. Oct. 24, 1956
