I finally decided to do the double wedding ring after going though the box of scraps . There is enough fabric to do another quilt of a different pattern later with larger pieces. The pieces that I have are all very small just big enough to get the little pieces for the rings . I am going to paper piece the rings for it would take to much time to cut each little piece with a template. At least to me it would.🙂
I made a pattern to piece on..
It will work out great! Look at all these lovely old fabrics .. I really forgot I had so many.
There are some really little pieces 1 1/2 inch or less that I thought would be cute to make into mug rugs.
Then I found these pieces that looked to me like they were cut for a quilt.
A fan ,tumbler ( larger and smaller size) Dresden plate would be my guess.
Then I found some blocks..
This piece was sown to the bottom piece in foundation piecing. There were a lot of strips so I might just do a log cabin with those pieces, and put this one in the quilt.
This block looks like it many have been a victim of mice teeth.
As I went though this fabric , I had to think of the lady that owned these before me. I do believe she liked to quilt, she also liked to save her scraps.. some of the fabric looked like shirt fabric ,so did she also make shirts for her family? I also had to wonder if any of the fabric held special memories for her…..
I hope my readers don’t get tried of seeing camellias.. I am still taken away with their beauty.
As I was walking taking my evening stroll ,I come upon this bush. Don’t know what kind it is,( maybe in the japonica family ?)But the bees loved it.
Tomorrow hubby and I will be married for 29 wonderful years. My.. how time flies!
