Jan.4th,2015.. a quilt using vintage keep sakes

I was given a pillowcase of doilies ,ties,table runners and and pillowcases along with some old dresses. The dear lady wanted these things made into a quilt for her sister’s birthday.They were things from their Grandmother and Mama. I told her, I sure would try.

So for several days the dining room table was a mess, the family ate in the family room.{so glad the family puts up with my messes!}

Here is what I did.I sure hope the sister is happy with it!

I also finished up 13 pillows for christmas gifts for a customer made from shirts.I wasn’t able to get pictures of them all for time ran out on me ,and she needed to get some in the mail so they would arrive before Christmas.

They were so fun to make !!

Now I’m working on a project for my Mama’s sewing circle. It is a New York Beauty.I have one block finished.

    Your quilting projects are wonderful. I really like the memory quilt, and how you creatively designed a lovely quilt using a variety of materials and objects. I bet that her sister loved it. I really like the New York Beauty design.
