    I have churn dash blocks from my mother...hand pieced. Thinking I might "some day" make 4 somethings from them so each of her grandchildren could have a remembrance.

    Grandmothers ufos

    hey, this looks familiar. I also have ufos of my Grandmother, Mother , and oldest sister. they all had too many ideas. I have the same pattern done in navy and white, some are straight edged and others are really curvy. I have tried to set them together with navy and red don't know if I like it or not. Yours are beautiful.

    What a wonderful treasure you have! I'm so glad for you. Leave it a while until you feel more confident, and then proceed. It will be a cherished quilt when you have it all done!

    Wow, this post is a blast from the past. I started in in 2009. Those blocks have since bacame a dresser scarf and table toppers for my night stands. The project is far from perfect. The blocks were not very flat and I didn't unsew them, but all in all I enjoy seeing them in my bedroom.

    Lisa: This is exactly how I became a quilter. I found quilt blocks and a quilt top that were my grandmother's. I was too nervous to do them myself so I had someone (who became a good friend) finish them for me. Then I ran to a fabric shop and took my first class. That was 4 years ago. I've made something like 30 quilts since then. So be warned. It could happen to you!
