I don't believe that I have shown this quilt to you. Maybe on Facebook???
This quilt has a history.
Way back in the olden days ..... Okay,,,not really
but a while back when I first started quilting
(Self taught here),
I started this quilt.
I am guessing I started this anywhere from ten to fourteen years ago. Maybe I should start putting dates on the quilts I start (maybe not, it would shame me too much). Not quite old enough to be considered an antique.....
I loved applique from the very beginning. Most of these are done by hand and then later, much later after seeing the squares sit in the drawer for so long I did some on the machine and they still sat.
My mother saw them and loved them so much that I gave her the squares and the fabrics to finish the top.
She finished it about a year ago...at age 79, the top that is.
I just finished quilting it and put the binding on.
I love love this quilt....if you could see it up close and personal you would too. Well...now it is my quilt.)
My mother lives in a small trailer off my car port and has no room for any more quilts ( ya me!!)....
I have been relieved of a lot of responsibilities that take me out of the home which means I get to sew more. My major objective is to get a lot of these tops finished and hopefully, on the frame. I hope I can keep up the momentum.
