Somewhere in my quilting history a friend asked me to make her daughter a table runner, another a baby quilt, another a T-shirt quilt. Over time it has turned into a very informal part time business. I am always surprised when someone asks me to make them a quilt, and always feel that the current one will probably be the last one ever and then another one comes along.
My daughter - in - law has a friend who asked if I would make her a quilt to use as a picnic blanket. She asked if I had any 1930s fabric. My friends are laughing here because I have baskets of Aunt Gracie fabrics, I have a guest bedroom referred to as the Aunt Grace room because of it's quilts from 1930s/feed sack type fabric. I also just happened to have a quilt top started using this fabric that never really turned into anything. It has wonderful big blank areas for quilting something fun.
This morning I am working on the remaining pinwheel blocks for the quilt border. I enjoy getting back to the basics of piecing: half square triangles, chain stitching, squaring up the blocks.
Happy Stitching all...
