We went to Phoenix, AZ for vacation for 17 days. I visited a quilter friend. One day we looked through old quilt magazines together. Another time she shared several old quilts made by her mother and grandmother, and some quilts she had made. I ohhhed and ahhhed and got bit.
One quilt a sixteen patch block set with a snowball block got my attention. I could see it made up with the 30’s fabrics waiting in the stash shed. I bought the fabric for the snowball block. For great niece, Jaden
A quilt in the window of quilt shop, Fabric Garden, called to me. I had plenty of 30’s in the box. I bought setting corner and binding fabric. For great niece, Anya.
And then, my compulsive/obsessive gene kicked in and somehow fabric came home; Atkinson’s Yellow Brick Road, a quilt designed to use fat quarters (a 18X21″ piece of fabric) is the designated pattern. For great nephew, Jacoby.
At the first of the year I had 5 quilts on my ‘hope’ to do list for 2014, One of these quilts wasn’t on the list . . . then.
Right now not a whole lot of knitting is getting down, hhhhmmmmm.
