    I made this for my friend and it is sitting on her antique bed that is over 100 years old!

    This is a quilt that I have started for my daughter Robbin and her family. Mammy my grandmother made the star blocks over 100 years ago, and I added the navy blue and off white blocks. I have two more that Mammy made, when i finish them I will put upload pictures of them!

    beautiful quilts, and I love the sewing area. Need something to finish a project? Just hop in the car and go. This is my favorite sewing area yet.

    I think that is so funny. You are right and, as a matter of fact me and my grandaughter are just about ready to go to the store to get more supplies for my next quilt.

    How awesome that you can incorporate your mammy's quilt blocks, that is so special. Both quilts are beautiful

    Very pretty quilts! I love how soft the first one looks with the pretty greens and florals.
    Love the star in the second picture. I haven't tried that yet. Nice piecing.
