Cool Gingham Quilt

Someone was asking the other day about whether or not anyone ever used gingham in quilts or not. I was jumping up and down raising my hand. But, knew my top was stuffed away in a trunk and I'd have to move mountains of stuff to get to it for a picture. Well, guess what? I already had a picture. found it yesterday while cleaning out old newpaper photos from my writing days. This is called chicken scratch for those who have never seen it. Hope you enjoy my quilt. I plan on digging it out and getting it quilted so I can enjoy it. I had forgotten how pretty it was.

Default Gingham pillow

I cannot take credit for this. My dear Aunt made this for me many years ago-my favorite color too. I proudly keep it on my guestroom bed! I remember a lady working on these while she was on break when I had my first job

Yes, that is so pretty and unique, be sure to finish it!! And that lavendar pillow is gorgeous! I know a lady who makes this style of quilts for all her many grands when they get married and they are beautiful! Hand work should always be cherished, don't ya think?

Its not as hard as it looks. But, it is just like all other hand work, it just takes time. It is a good thing to do when you need a little break. (usually when my fingers get sore)
