    Re: Favorite precuts quilts

    Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. He was so active and we did everything together. He had 3 strokes in 4 days. You’ve all given me great ideas to use my stash. I also want to make a quilt for me. I have given them all away. Lol. I have 2 more grandkids to make a quilt for then the 10 grandkids and 4 adult kids will be done. So after that I want to make myself a comfort quilt. I just turned 65 in January and I’ve said I want to make sure all the family has their quilts. My husband used to joke I’d better plan on living to 90.
    I’m writing down all your suggestion. Thanks so much.

      Yes, you do need to make a quilt for you! I feel for you. I have a quote, but for the life of me, can't remember where I read it, I was looking at pioneer diaries.

      "The Standard Book of Quilt Making and Collecting,
      Marguerite Ickis, 1949, quoting her great-grandmother

      It took me more than 20 years, nearly 25, I reckon, in the evenings after supper when the children were all put to bed.
      “My whole life is in that quilt. It scares me sometimes when I look at it. All my joys and all my sorrows are stitched into those little pieces. When I was proud of the boys and when I was downright angry at them. When the girls annoyed me or when they gave me a warm feeling around my heart.
      And John too. He was stitched into that quilt and all the thirty years we were married. Sometimes I loved him and sometimes I sat there hating him as I pieced the patches together. So, they are all in that quilt, my hopes and fears, my joys and sorrows, my loves and hates. I tremble sometimes when I remember what that quilt knows about me.”
      When you have decided what you believe, what you feel must be done, have the courage to stand alone and be counted
      Eleanor Roosevelt

          Sorry for your loss, a difficult time indeed.
          My favorite-and most requested-quilt is Phoebe's Flower Box. A M* tutorial/pattern and I think I have made at least 6 of these.

            I am so sorry about the sudden death of your husband. Maybe you just need something completely mindless to make for yourself and nothing could be easier than getting a few charm packs and sewing them together edge to edge to make a plain old fashioned patchwork quilt. No matching, no points, no fussy pattern to follow. Maybe make one in your husband's favorite color or include fabric from some of his shirts if you can bring yourself to cut them up.

                It sounds as if you have a good, healthy plan to help you cope with your sudden and extremely difficult loss. I hope you do find comfort in planning and sewing your quilts. Do start with yours first.
                I just read about Economy Blocks which are Squares in Squares blocks, I believe. I'll look for the link. It looks like a fun one to sew up.
                All my best.

                  I am sorry to hear of the loss of your husband .
                  I like piecing together scrapes to make 10 inch or 5 inch blocks. When I have a lot on my mind, putting together scraps gives me a feeling of rebuilding something with my hands and my mind is free to relax and piece things together in it's own way. Cutting sewn scraps to size gives my thoughts perspective. Sometimes I just add scraps together and lay large pieces aside to cut at another time. One day I went back and cut them into good size circles. Not sure why I did that other than whim, since blocks are easier to make plans for. It is nice not to have follow a set pattern or have an expectation of what it is to become.

                      I am so sorry for your terrible loss. I hope quilting helps put you at ease. For charm packs, I like to sew up HST and see where they take me. Most often it is Around the World. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...7DPAiSeFh7eSZc

                      For layer cakes, I like friendship Star sashing https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...sgxyd6k_vE6biE

                      For jelly rolls I like stack and flip https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...ihZExiObHFnPVr
