This is a quilt that I had started at retreat and just couldn't find my passion to finish. Couldn't do anything. Took me a while but I finally started coming out of my depression and one of the things that helped me was finishing this quilt. I love making quilts.

Isn't it wonderful what fabric can do for us that at times nothing else can? I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better.

The colors you chose really speak "smiles." Lovely job.

(Hey, when I'm not feeling well, can I borrow it??) :wink:

This is really pretty too! I am loving all your pictures!

I struggle with seasonal depression- we have looong winters in the U.P., plus I have a family history of depression. I, like you, make very bright, happy quilts. I wonder if there is something to that? We both use colorful "wild" fabric to make cheerful happy quilts to lift our spirits. I bet there are others on here who would say the same. I have stretches where the sewing machine just does not appeal to me, so I always know I am in a downward spiral when I don't want to play with my fabric.

Funny, though, even when I don't feel like sewing, I still love to BUY fabric. LOL!

It's so good to find pleasure in something constructive like quilting, and watching what you create grow and turn into a thing of beauty. Great job!

I find it really amazing how handling fabrics, putting pieces together,and spending quiet time with it can somehow clear away the dark clouds.
