    Just Finished - a precious project

    I just loved getting to do this simple (on my end) quilt. My friend's aunt passed away around 30 years ago and had been an avid quilter. My friend had attempted to put together some of her aunt's leftover 4-patches into strips. Decades later, they were still sitting in a bag in a closet. When my friend discovered that I quilt (she's a new friend in our new home), she asked me if I'd be able to put it (and another I'll show you in a week or two) together into a quilt. She said she's always longed to have her aunt's quilts finished...she was loved very much.

    Anyway, I took the strips, moved some blocks to make them the same length, squared up the strips, and blocked them out in white to show them off. I quilted it myself, then used a blue swiss dot, from my stash, to bind it. She's just thrilled with the pictures. I'm getting ready to deliver it to her. She's just had a medical procedure and is still not feeling 100%...I can't wait to hand it over.

      Sometimes, the ufos from the past, have dated fabrics that are not the eye candy we are used to seeing. A lot of those quilts are not what I would call pretty but utilitarian. These blocks you made look modern, pretty, and utilitarian. The aunt that started the project will be looking down from above knowing her project will give hugs every time it is used! This quilt has so many wow factors! Nice job!
      Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

        What a good job you did with the squares! The end result is very pretty. You were very kind to make this quilt for her.

          I love how you took something dated, yet precious and turned it into something modern and lovable! Love the white to separate yet give emphasis to all the color. Great job!
