Trips Around the World

Kathy and her mom stopped by for a visit to drop off these quilts.

Kathy found me on FB and we became friends. Her grandmother & mother made many quilt tops in the 60’s -70’s and they have not yet been quilted. Slowly but surely they bring me one every now and again to get finished up. It’s been  great. I love seeing all of the fabrics and being part of the process to finish them.

Kathy says sometimes when they pull them out they still smell like her grandma….I love that. It’s funny how our brains can remember those smells so vividly and take us back to those lovely memories.

The fabrics aren’t cotton. They used leftovers from clothing they made..so it’s all polyester.  I quilted flowers on both quilts…but they each have a different focus flower to give them some variety.

This next one I adore…all of the colors are modern colors…See how everything always comes back around? Peach is making quite a comeback lately. That was popular in the 80’s.  🙂

They have a baby coming soon…so I also quilted a few baby quilts for them. The first one is from Grandma:

The second one is one Kathy made….flannel back of course. SO comfy!

I enjoyed working on these quilts. Thanks SO much!

Blessings on the new arrivals!
