More quilt photo's!

I have been making a few squares every chance that I get for my quilt. It is a memory quilt in a way.
Most of the fabrics are scraps from my many bonnets that I have made. I also have one square made
from leftover fabrics from the tote bag class I took last summer, and  one square where I  am using the civil war
reproduction fabric from my quilted table runner class that I I also took last summer. I am trying so hard to sew 1/4" seams, but I am not doing very well. So after I finish all of the squares I will just have to
trim off the excess on some and make sure they are all the same size.
I have finished 31 squares and 25 more to go. Wow what a project. So what do you think of my scrap quilt? I hope I get the squares arranged so that the colors blend together.

  3. I have so much fabric stashed away! A quilt like yours would be a good way for me to use some of it up. I washed and ironed it all about a year ago...so I think I should be ready to go!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
