Anyone who knows me knows that I love Quilts!
Todays Instagram Quilt Fest post is about scrappy finishes, so I spent a little time looking through my pictures and look what I found!
My adorable Granddaughters enjoying a summer day last year! I had forgotten about the quilt that they are on!
It was made using quilters candies from a once upon loved quilt shop in town called Patchworks! The owner had a candle jar of charms folded into 1” squares with a stitch to hold them together. When I shopped with my girls the owner Diana would pour them onto the floor and my girls were allowed to pick one to add to the collection…
I remember making the quilt to practice Longarm quilting when I first began my business.
One day last December we had a day with grands which always makes for a grand day! Kaija asked me if we could go to my sewing room and make something. Music to this Grandmas ears!!
We made a pouch with scraps and when I dumped out my in use scrap basket I was reminded of my initial love of scraps! She filled her little pouch with scraps and has had hours of fun!
I have made and quilted so many scrappy quilts and my customer quilts continue to inspire more…
I have an early memory of my Mom taking taking me to a neighbours house and this lady had a sewing room full of Raggedy Ann dolls all in bright dresses she also made Barbie clothes…that room was so full of inspiration that never left me I was probably 5 yrs at the time!
Hopefully my sewing room will grow inspiration in my granddaughter’s hearts and minds as well.
