“Hugs and Kisses” by Suzanne Unbehaun

I made my first quilt when I was 18 years old. It was a simple patchwork made with fabrics left from clothing I had made myself. It was a mix of cotton/polyester, corduroy and double knits to name a few. This was long before rotary cutters and all the tools we have today, so I cut cardboard templates and traced the shapes to fabric, then hoped for the best! It was a quilt for my room at college and turned out just fine.

I have always had a quilt project since that first quilt so long ago. I love the fabrics, colors and the endless design possibilities. Quilting has brought me many hours of enjoyment with some great friends and has brought many amazing people into my life. I can’t imagine how my life would be different had I not made that first quilt. My paternal grandmother had made a quilt in the 1920’s that she never finished. She passed it to me many years ago, and I have some of the hand quilting done. I hope to finish it one day and keep the art of quilting through the generations alive.

This project was inspired when I was making a quilt using the “o” block. I realized that by turning the block into itself it made an”x”. It was just a simple little thing, but the project came about because of that. As I said, design possibilities are endless. I never tire of the challenges of the math and thinking of new ideas.
