Inspirations Matter

I’ve mentioned back in August how inspired I was by my Great Aunt Hattie. Here’s a refresher in case you missed it. I am extremely grateful and also elated by the review I received this past week on Etsy. I am humbled at the word ‘heirloom’. What a daunting task to make something of that caliber again. So the question looms….will I?

Thank you for your creativity and workmanship!! This arrived promptly and very well packaged. Very pleased!! If I could give ten stars, I would!

The Future of Quilting

 

My niece became a connoisseur of blanket-making this Christmas. I first received this text message:

An actual Sewn-by-machine, honest to goodness, blanket.

Among the handful she cIMG_1084 (2)reated was this one….. ANd along the way she discovered JoAnn Fabric Online 🙂

Guess what Evette?? My sewing room is nearly complete and open to use when you need it 🙂

Happy Holidays to all my readers!

 

Sugar

Grandma

This is the person inspiring my next quilt. She’s my grandmother and I am positively certain the quilt block would have had her approval. She nicknamed everyone and mine was “Sugar”. I don’t hear many people call me that anymore. I’m now Steph, Stephie, Stuff, Teffie, Nini, and any other way a young child can pronounce my 9 Letter name. Thanks mom 🙂

But here are a few options for that sugar bowl pattern from Pinterest.

shelsbrokensugarbowlTitled ‘shellsbrokensugarbowl’ respectively but not into much broken things right now. Currently listening to a dripping faucet that may become more “broken” (with a sledge hammer) in the very near future.

And finally we come to the one I feel fits the bill. (from Judy Hopkins 501 Rotary-Cut Quilt Blocks).

So now we wait on the dryer to finish with the chosen fabrics……..
