It is day 3 of the See You In September blog hop and it is my turn. First I would like to thank two special ladies for planning this most exciting hop, Mdm. Samm of Sew We Quilt and Shari of Living with Purpose. I like to say with the hops, I do not think I would have gotten anything done this summer, with all the running around and family ups and downs. It gave me a way to escape all the every day problems.
My first finish for the summer was a quilt that I have dedicated to my grandma Hattie E. Green.
She was 105 when she passed. That is me in my early 20’s. Her favorite song to sing was Jacob’s Ladder. In a early post I talked about it, but it was just on the planning board with pieces I had started. Without this hop I do not think it would have been finish for awhile.
Here is my Jacob’s Ladder, quilt by a local quit shop Tomorrow's Treasures. I still need to add a label, then once I have my bedroom painted and the new bed put up (Yes, the bed is another walking toilet story). I will hang this on the wall to remind me of her.
For my second quilt I used those lovely Kona solids I have been collecting for sometime. I got the pattern from one of the magazines I had around the house. Tom cleaned off the table and I have not been able to find the magazine (I think he threw it out by mistake. Yah). So if anyone remembers this pattern and the creator of this pattern, please let me know, so I can give her the credit. I even quilted it myself, since it was just simple straight lines. LOVING MODEREN QUILTING. I think is is call Petals, it will make a nice wall hang or table runner.
Now, I have never used gingham, put it is a lot of fabrics I have not used. After seeing some of the gingham projects on this hop, I am thinking get more gingham.
I have two lovely ladies, Jackie and Marjorie from my office to model my creation, a gingham apron. I use a small colorful jelly roll that I got and white two inch strips
Now for the give-a-way. All you have to do is leave a comment and let me know if you are a follower or a new follower. You have until September 12 to leave your comment and I will post on September 13th the winner. So what is the give-a-way. Well what else, but a layer cake of RBD Gingham and a surprise in the package.
