    Been busy...

    Gram's Stars:
    I can't iron the seams flat in gram's quilts before I quilt them...so far things are working but I'm still so afraid I'm going to damage them.

    D9P:
    the beginning of a quilt for a dear friend from grade school.. she loves football
    and Oklahoma State...Cowboy's Love Dots!

    Kansas Troubles:
    Helping me get over my fear of triangles and sharp points. Thank God for glue!

    wow! your gramma's quilt is amazing. Lucky you! I don't think I would quilt if I had to hand-piece (and cut those pieces with a template & scissors, to boot!) Your kansas troubles quilt is Perfection.

    Just to warn you...Don't hesitate to cut that first seam. LoL. I had trouble convincing myself to cut up a perfectly good block. HaHa! But it all turns out great. I've done 3 or 4 of them. they are like potato chips...

    You're welcome & I agree....so lucky to have her.Mine has been gone many yrs, but I was Grma's girl & think of her often.Lost Mama nearly 2 yrs ago.....that makes me the older generation in my family.I try to use the examples they set.I miss them.

    I was thinking that thought the other day...about how I was moving up to be the "older" generation in my family...I'm not ready yet! I still have all the girly thoughts and feelings...did my gram and mom feel this way?? And somewhere I hit my "peak"...I think I missed it...BwaHaHaHaHa!

    they are beautiful! and this thread just made me realize I am now the family matriarch . OMG!!!! and at 71 I still think like I am 25, but feel like 80 at times. Funny how those years jump up suddenly. But I have loved them all! Not sure when I peaked, so it must not have been a big deal. LOL
