Ouilting is steeped in traditions. The name of blocks, patterns for quilting and stories of the makers. All this and more is gifted to the following generations of quilters.
As a quilter I am immersed in the handing down of stories and hand made treasures.
Grampa Dolly next generation.
My father made sock dolls. He made one for each of his 8 grandchildren. I in turn have made a sock doll for each of my grand children. Perched on the high chair my Grampa Dolly is a gift for my 3rd Grandchild who is now 1year old. The Grampa Dolly I made will share life with the one my Dad made for Archer's Mom ; my daughter Mandy .
Quilting has continued on the neutral string blocks with hexies. One a day for April.
The creams are monoplising the string blocks so when I made a "Just checking it out " stop at Spotlight. The five fat quarters for $10 was a chance to add some not so cream and larger scale prints to the mix. The deal was for groups of 5 which meant I needed one more fq and the poison green was more interesting than a brown paper bag one.
Don't know where this project is going but it is ......... humm better than one off hexies in a box.
It is a Blustery day here so off to hang out the 10 fq's to dry.
Enjoy whatever project you are working on. Terry
