    Early "Quilting" projects

    In the 1970-80's I called these "craft projects", but they really are small quilts. I made these for my sister and my mother--Mother's been gone a long time, but my sister has kept her "stuff". I spied these in the closet this morning and took some pictures to share.

    Really pretty. I actually want to make one of the stars into a pillow. I've seen them recently and I don't think they looked dated at all.

    My sister is a "keeper"--and mother was living with her when she died, so these kinds of things stayed with her.
    I'd made one for my MIL, as well, and I have it on my wall at home. Guess I'm a "keeper" as well!
