Man teaches himself to make quilts

Published 12:00 am Monday, December 16, 2002

Nobody told Paul Clawson that men weren’t supposed to make quilts. That’s why his latest and most intricate project was on display at the Senior Citizens Center Christmas Bazaar last Friday.

“I just have fun doing it,” Clawson said. “This way people can find out what men are good for.”

The queen size inch quilt is just one of some 50 quilts that Clawson, 64, has pieced together during the last six years. It took him over a year to put this one together because of the 9,900 one-inch blocks that had to be cut out and sewn together.

“I just slapped it together,” he said.

Clawson has been slapping together quilts for the Senior Citizens Center for three years.
