QOtD - 5/10/11 - 'Recovery Quilt'
Two years ago when I broke my foot, I spent hours on the sofa with an ice pack on my foot. I couldn't get comfortable at my sewing machine so I started my first (and so far ONLY) hand quilted project. It wasn't large but I ended up loving it and still think of it as my broken foot quilt.
Now I'm about to have knee surgery and already have my hand applique project set out where I can reach it, even in the early days of my convalescence.
Have you ever used a period of recovery - emotional or physical - to make a quilt?
