Grandma’s Fabric: Two more started!

I have some 4 patches left over from previous quilts using the 2 ½” squares – so I’ve started working on another quilt to use them up.  This one will end up a little bigger.  However, I do need to make some more 4 patches.  I haven’t decided if it will be on-point or straight.  I’ll wait until I have all the blocks made before I decide.

There are no pictures of the 2nd one I’ve started … it’s mostly in my mind and will involve 2 ½” strips of grandma’s fabric sewn with white fabric … only grandma’s fabric is cut into strips and I need to cut more white strips.   I am thoroughly enjoying working with her fabric.  My grandma was a pretty special lady!

Wander over to Patchwork Times and Love, Laugh, Quilt to see what others are working on.

A note on the nursing reunion:  It was great fun to see the gals that attended!  A few I hadn’t seen for 40 years!  And it was neat to connect with everyone.  Kudos go to the Katy, the main organizer!

Happy Quilting!

Nursing Reunion and zipper bags

This weekend, I’m going to a nursing reunion!  Hard to believe that it’s been 40 years since we graduated from St. Joes!  It will be fantastic to see everyone that attends!

The gal organizing the reunion contacted me and asked if I had anything small in my quilty box to use as prizes for a game.  I replied, “sure, I have some zipper bags.”  Well, I went to my quilty box, which did not have any zipper bags in it.  So, that means that I need to make some.  They don’t take long and are fun to make.

I pulled out my small tote of fat quarters and chose a couple of prints … I’ll make the one on the right first.
