One of the things that is fun about using these scraps from Grandma...a fabric like this would never find it's way into my stash any other way. LOL. I just don't buy large florals. But isn't it pretty?
This fabric makes me think of apartment buildings. Tom sees dice.
I used this fabric to make a portfolio for 4-H in the late 1950's. Even though it is clearly yellow roses,I always see ears of corn when I look at it. Must be the Iowa girl in me.
Believe it or not I used this fabric to make pajamas for my two oldest sons in the late 60's. What fun to be working with it and reliving those memories as we wait (not so patiently) for both of them to have grandchildren born in the next few days.
Grandma had a dress from this material.
And I'd like a few yards of this yummy green.
Would like some of this red print as well.
Several blocks use fabric with embossing for the star points..like these blue ones. The print is a feedsack.
These are almost perfectly fussy cut.
Another of those prints that would never make it into my stash under normal circumstances.
I LOVE the movement in this fabric. Would take a few yards of it too!
It feels good to be finally working up these cut pieces. I don't want to die without making them into a quilt.
Crazy weather happening in this part of the country. I hope all my Midwestern blog friends stay safe. And to everyone..Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
