Inspiration

When my friend showed me this quilt top made by her grandmother.....
I told myself......"you have the right kind of friends!"   ;)

Love...love....love the fabrics!
Can you see how strips were sewn on a thin muslin foundation?
That's my kind of quilting!
I am SO tempted to work on something like this......
Oh my! When am I NOT going to be tempted to BEGIN something?

  3. Great looking top! Please get your friend to document the date, place, and name of the maker on a label. Perhaps she can get it quilted?

    1. She will quilt it and I'll remind her to add the info. ;)

  4. I suspect many of us will stop being tempted to begin new things when we are able to stop looking at the work of others (may that day NEVER come!) . . . This one is grand, indeed!

  5. Now wouldn't this be a nice little sew along ?
    Love the quilt and fact that it is going to get quilted by the
    granddaughter. See it's okay to leave some things not finished :0)

    Happy Sewing
