It has gone to college, law school & now her first home with her.
    THAT is what it is all about isn't it...making something that will be treasured which collects memories along the way, beautiful!

    Pardon the pun but this is downright yummy! I love it! Lucky you to win such great blocks!

I'm so glad you like them! The pattern of the quilt you saw on the back of my sofa is 'Underground Railroad Story' by Eleanor Burns. Enjoy!
    I love it! The colors are so inviting! Samplers are fun to do, aren't they?

    Beautiful! I love your fabric choice! It looks old (like me... LOL) & yummy (unlike me... LOL)!

    similar to pp, just sew fabrics to dryer sheets; but unlike pp, the dryer sheets remain to be stitched into the quilt ... with all the pros and cons.

    Here's a picture of my pillow sham that I just finished, I have made two but need to finish off the binding on the other one. These were made using up left over 4 patches and HST's from my Jacobs Ladder quilt I made last autumn
