    Good work. I especially like #1. I recently found several hidden tops, so I understand how that can happen.

    Do you ever sleep? LOL! These are all awesome! And what a wonderful surprise, eh? How come when I go digging around in my older quilt stuff, all I find is fabric that makes me say "Why in the world did I ever buy THIS???"! LOL!

    These quilts are just beautiful what a treasure find. You luck girl you. I swear Rebecca we must be related. I was thinking the same thing. I have a pile of fabric just waiting to be sent to someone else. Then I think that maybe I'll like them better if I wait a little longer. There had to have been a reason that I purchased them.

    Quilt #3 looks like Sharlene Jorgenson's Crazy Quilt from the late 1980's. It was the first quilt pattern that I ever bought and came with acrylic templates. It was also the first time that I used a rotary cutter to cut out my whole quilt. I made at least 20 quilts using that pattern and no two were alike. I recently found a top made of all those 1980's fabrics in my collection and just got it quilted. I still have enough patches cut to make at least one more and the templates are still in wonderful shape.

    Isn't it fun to connect to things from the past and bring them up to the present?

    I haven't found any completed tops stored away but yesterday I did find a bunch of blocks in the pattern of the first quilt you posted. Think with the addition of some borders they will make a nice dolly quilt. Each year around Thanksgiving my Guild gives about 40 or so dolly quilts to a local seniors group. They pair the little quilts with dolls and teddy bears as gifts for the Head Start Kids in their town. I like making dolly quilts from leftover blocks, it goes quickly and I feel that I've accomplished something. May in Jersey
