Blast from the past triggers the ole brain

One of my customers dropped off a quilt last week and said "Quilt it like the other one you did for me". Of course there is no such picture in her folder and it's not in my file of quilts from the the last 10 years. I remember doing it, arghhhhh. Just my luck I didn't get a picture of it.

However I did come across a few past quilts that brought back..... odd memories.

I must have the worlds worst memory but the strangest thing happens when I quilt while listening to music, audio books or a movie. I can stop quilting on Friday night and as soon as I start quilting on Monday I can tell you exactly what song, part of a movie or even what line was being read in an audio book. It doesn't happen if I start quilting in a new place, only when I go back to the spot I left off.

While looking at the photo's I remembered what books I was listening to on these four quilts. Just popped in my head. Strange!! It only lasts a second and then it's gone. Any body else?


  1. Beautiful quilts, Janet! My odd memory thing is that in printed material (books, newspapers, mags) I know the location and position of the info. I am looking - on the left page 3/4s of the way down...such a weirdo!

  2. That's awesome!!! And handy! I read something and then can't tell you what it was about or where I read it 5 minutes later. lol

  3. You are just the bestest quilter! I love your work!!!!!
