Inherited Beauty

Okay everyone please don't be alarmed and fall off your computer chairs by me surprising you with a blog post after a few long hot months! I wish I could say that I have been busy sewing and got so lost in my work I forgot to turn on my computer but alas that's not the situation. Instead I have been super duper hot waiting for the desert to cool down for me so I can function once again : )
I have just started sculpting again on a limited basis but I can feel it....Fall is coming and I can't wait! Which means busy busy times for me ahead!
I received this beautiful handmade quilt in a box full of goodies not too long ago and wanted to share with all of you. My grandmother sewed this for my grandfather. The label on the back says she started it in 1975 and finished it in 1980!! Wow! That really amazes me : )
P.S. Just wanted to mention that I recognize a lot of the scraps my Gramma used in this quilt. The cute green fabric is left over from an apron she made for me when I was about 5 years old! I see some reversible tennis skirt fabric in there too and a prairie dress she sewed for me and my dolly : ) Such sweet memories!

What a wonderful treasure that is! I have quilts from my grandma that she made me and my brothers and my kids as well! She inspired me to learn to make them myself!
