We went to our new JoAnn's location yesterday. It's bigger, it's brighter, and the first time I was there, it was crowded with helpful staff. This time, it was not and looked as picked over as the old store location did. But, that's okay, we managed to find everything we needed. Most of my sewing time was on my new shirt. The class I took last Monday wasn't very helpful, except she had a new way to set in a collar and I think I ended up with the neatest collar stand I've ever made. I tried to take a picture, but it needs a press before I share it. I added some size to the shirt for comfort and as I was making it, I made additional adjustments. Now I need to transfer all that to the pattern. And, while we were at JoAnn's, I bought a piece of fabric for another shirt for more practice.
Anyway, what I have to share is quilts. These are some of the vintage quilts I own, inherited from both sides of my family.
I believe these first quilts all came from my Mom's side. They're all the same pattern and if I had to guess, made by the same person. I believe they all have whipped field cotton battings.
This one was in our home when I was a child. It has a couple of loosely woven fabrics that have shredded, but for the most part, it's in good shape.
