Twin Quilts (2)

Made two twin quilts as a gift for my mother -

To match the wallpaper in the cabin they had at the time -

Scraps in the wallpaper colors for the birds -

And rust solid and a Hawaiian print for the alternating blocks -

County Fair - October 1979 -

Won 2nd place -


And they hung it upside down!!! - ;))

  1. Sweet birdies.
    I would spend the Summer crafting with my grandmother, many times she would enter my finished projects in the county fair (without my knowledge). I would not find out till I walked through the Expo Barn and see it sitting there. It was always a treat to see the ribbons on my work, when I was displaying with all age groups and I was just a young girl. Very encouraging.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
