Today is sunny and crisp - the perfect day to air my antique quilts. The first one is very old and was my husband's Grandmother's. I thinks it's absolutely beautiful! The second one called "bridal bouquet" was hand pieced by a 90 year old lady in 1945 - she charged my mom $2 for the piecing! You can't even buy thread for that anymore! Someone else hand quilted it for $7 - can you imagine?!!
This is the quilt that I'm working on right now. There are three squares in this beginner's "sampler" quilt. Not sure what the patterns are called (I think the one on the top right is called Flying Geese). I will try to find out at my next class. It's a lot of fun and I can't wait to see how it all turns out.
Total cost for class and fabric (including HST) = $96.20!!!! EEK - just a tad more then my Mom's!
At least I'm relearning how to use my relatively new machine and it may spark a renewed interest in sewing. Who knows?
Just made a quick lunch - nothing is better then a simple salmon salad sandwich, with arugula, pea sprouts, pickles and sliced veggies on a busy Saturday! I think I'll leave the dishes, the sewing where it is and head outside to do a bit of digging in the flower beds - the sun is calling me outside. Might have to get out of my PJs first though - smile!
Tomorrow is Easter Sunday - my heart is full of joy!
Have an amazing blessed Easter!
