Quilters are so generous. That’s all I can say.
I mentioned that I had been offered some feedsacks by a follower, Barb. She lives near here and had read that I was going to be working on the vintage Dresden Plate quilt and offered me these to add.
I was humbled by the abundance. From what I hear, having multiple feedsacks in the same print is unusual. The roses on the left are four large sacks and the blue polka dots in the upper right corner are 3 sacks. Others are one or one and a half or two sacks. How wonderful. And, there were some scraps, shown here in the lower right that added a lot of color. And, those large triangles, for they are folded in half, there are 8 of them. Wow!
Some had been cut and I wondered what girl had showed off in a new dress or old granny had gotten a new apron.
And, as if that weren’t enough, an envelope labeled Surprise! Who could resist?
A stash of batik pieces and a note hoping they will work in the Jubilee quilt.
What a bounty!
Thanks so much, Barb!! I can’t wait to quilt!
After I rolled around like a cat in that for a while, I remembered that I am teaching this afternoon and piled everything in the tub and packed up the machine. There will be three today. I am excited. I’ve retooled the class and am going to focus on the basics and what I’ve learned in 11 years.
Have a great day! We’re off for a pre-class burger. Lane
