I have a finish up , an hurry up and a waiting to be done, on my list.
First the finished one . It is a rag quilt… I called it “now that’s purple”
Then I remembered that I needed to get busy on the top that I was making for my mother in law using her mothers scrap fabric. I want to work on this one really hard for Mama is 77. That is the hurry up one that’s to be completed..hand quilted included!
And the one waiting to be pieced….
My daughter in law gave me those pieces of fabric ,that she came across knowing I would use them somehow.
I was able to get 12″ blocks cut from the pieces. I want to make a rag quilt out of this . I laid the top and bottom out on the bed.
I stacked them like this until I sit down to sew them.
We have had lots of dreary,rainy days,so this lady needs a little color from the summer !😊
What a great start to the New Year. Very productive!
Sewing is a great way to start a new year! Well, I think so anyway.😀 thanks for stopping by!!
Beautiful, I bought a quilt in the USA 10 years ago, it hangs over my stairs…….I would love to able to make one, maybe one day when I retire from work 🙂
Thank you! I think it would be lovely if you could make one sometime!

Thank you, hopefully one day, but it would have to be a simple one 🙂
I love the quilt for your mother-in-law–is that called Bears Paw? And the butterfly photo is beautiful and so welcome, in this gray time of year!
Thank you, Kerry! It is a bears paw . She wanted one of these for her last name is Bear.:)
Hi Deb. It’s cool that her last name is Bear and she wanted a Bears Paw quilt. It is beautiful. I have always wanted to make a Bears Paw. Happy New Year to you and yours.
Thank you! Bear paw blocks are fun to make for it does great with scraps.
The quilt you are making for your mother-in-law is wonderful. I really like it incorporates fabric scraps that once belonged to her mother. What a wonderful I idea! It makes me wish that I had my mother’s scraps.
Glad you like the quilt 🙂 I’m not sure if I’ll find to much fabric in my moms place when she moves on but if there is .. I’ll be standing guard to make sure it isn’t thrown out!
