Look what I found!


My sister brought a crate from storage in because it had some batting in it and I needed some. It also had these quilt tops. I didn't make any of them. They were picked up at yard sales or estate sales probably in the 90's.

I am going to find backings for them and quilt them sometime this year. Except for the pink and flowered one. I may make some changes to it. They are all bedsized. I have them folded in the picture.

This is what happens to some of our unfinished tops when family members that don't quilt,inherit them!

I love old quilt tops. I like the one all the way to the left in the pic' - it looks like someone was making it as a wedding gift.

Thank you for coming to visit me and for becoming a follower!!! Some people love to piece quilt tops. I love to quilt them!!! When I was younger I love to applique!!
In 2002 I had a very bad fall. Than again in 04 and than again in 07 and 08 and in 09!!!! It has put a big dent in my sewing, because what I have been hurting is my cervical spin and shoulders. My hands are also a problem. Arthritic!!!!!
But I really want to try to get back to it.
I am a grandmother of one g-daughter.
XO, Fern
