So I have decided that every Sunday would be a day to display one of my own completed quilts. I need to finish some of my own quilts for the “to be quilted Bin”
This quilt was actually another one of those “yard sale finds” …I went to a quilt show years ago and there was a stack of quilt blocks in a bag. No pattern…no idea….and not many. I liked the focus fabric….and The blocks were not “perfect” …but I thought I could still use them and make a great quilt. There were 12 blocks….I could have made a small lap quilt…but why?
Instead I made 17 snowball blocks to set them against and pieced a border to go with them.
I am not exactly sure why I have waited so long to quilt it? It didn’t take me very long….and I love the big flower blocks. I tried to quilt a different flower in each big snowball to give it some glitter.
Here are the yard sale blocks that I bought:
Some of the different flower I made up as I went along:
Once again I just had fun completing a project made from orphan blocks that someone else discarded. I am pretty happy with this and feel a sense of relief in some way…..that now these orphans have a sense of belonging. I know it’s an inanimate object….but for me quilts are alive and have so much meaning to me.
So I feel a double sense of accomplishment because this was years in the making and now it’s done.
Thanks so much for your continued support.
