Gen Stewart is one of the Fulda women whose artistic talents and skills shine out through the myriad of quilts that she has made.

She is currently choosing fabric for the 2015 Fulda Wood Duck Festival Heritage Society's quilt fundraiser. “I think that we will probably go with black, white and red for the quilt. There is a lot of eye appeal in those colors,” Stewart commented as she indicated a pile of fabric laid to one side of her sewing machine.

Although Stewart does not know the exact number of quilts that she has made throughout the years, she has kept photos of each quilt in a scrapbook. Many of the photos show quilts that have been made for family members. “One year I made eleven quilts for Christmas - one for each of my grandchildren,” Stewart shared. Besides receiving a Christmas quilt, Stewart's grandchildren have each received a quilt for their high school graduation. “I still have two that are unfinished, but they are coming along. I usually have a variety of projects going at the same time…so that I don't get bored with any one project,” she added.

Stewart refers to some of the quilts that she has made as “everyday”quilts. To read the rest of this article - pick up a copy of this weeks Fulda Free Press or subscribe to our eedition at http://eedition.fuldafreepress.net
