YES!!!!......FINALLY....to lots of things. I have been having a refrigerator and freezer calamity that has been going on for over a week!! ( and it is still not over, but partly my fault because I won't decide on which new one I want...too many options ) I finally got back to my sewing room this weekend and I FINALLY decided on sashing for my boxy star quilt that has been in limbo. I really like how this is turning out.
It's amazing when I look at each block at how many memories come with each piece of fabric scrap. The little dotted cornerstones are vintage from my grandmothers stash.....still stiff with heavy sizing. There is no telling how old this fabric is. This square includes scraps from garments my grandmother made for my mother. The fabric on the left at the bottom....gold with turquoise....I have the actual garment from this scrap that my mother wore in high school. It's a blouse with a very full skirt....it's cute!
This square includes some scraps from garments I made for my daughter when she was about 5 or 6 yrs. old as well as some from the one and only log cabin/scrap swap I have ever participated in. I am going to REALLY LOVE and ADORE this quilt!!!
