The 1930's Quilt

Hello Friends,

This past weekend I went to a quilt show in New London with a couple of the quilt club girls and came across a VERY old find. Quilt squares from the 1930's and a Civil War label.  Some of the blocks are tattered and stained, but I will do my best to bring them back to life and turn them into a  beautiful quilt. These antique quilt squares were made with small scraps of unique fabric from the depression era.  What I plan to do is find some 1930's reproduction fabric to turn these squares into the quilt it should have been years ago!


There was one 1930's Dresden among my finds...

Below is the Civil War label

I can't wait to get started on this beauty.

Flower Garden Memory Quilt

Hello friends,

I hope your summer is going well.  Can you believe that July is over? Summer is going extremely fast and I feel like I haven't done much at all. Actually, I know I haven’t done much… Partly because the weather has been awful this summer.  The heat is unbearable and the extreme amounts of rainfall has put a damper on everything.  I am hoping that August brings back sunny days and I can get back into quilting!

Today, I am happy to share a little progress on a memory quilt I've been working on…
I have all the birds, hearts and flowers all sewn on and another border around the orange...  This is turning out real nice.   - Love the colors it really makes it pop!

My sister loved birds and hummingbirds 
were her favorite!!  :-)
