Quilts connect the past with the present and the future
I would like to introduce you to “Grammy”, she was buried among to other unfinished projects that I have stuffed away. Grammy was a delight to rediscover,and I was rather surprised at not having had finished this top. Oh ,bother what can I say other than I am feathered brained at times 🤷🏻♀️
I called this one Grammy for it was reminds me of my Grammy.. dresses and aprons that she would wear. The fans are old vintage fabrics from the 1920’s to the 1930’s set into muslin ,the backing is an old piece of cotton fabric that was 36″ wide ..so I’m guessing it might be a 1940’s piece.
Grammy just after I had marked her for quilting
Where I was when I left off…
Which is a good half way done..
Where I’m picking back up an unfinished job.
It is a queen size quilt. Here’s where I start…
Next quilt along I’ll count the blocks that are finished and how many more I need to go as it will be hard to show with lap quilting how far I’ve gotten.
Now for the Fire Island Hosta quilt.. here is where I was..
I was working on the end at the top last update ,now I have that end finished rolled the quilt worked from top to bottom ,rolled again,now I am working at the bottom moving towards the top of the photo.
That’s it for me. Have a great week!
