This means of course that the house needs to be empty by then. So they're sorting out their stuff: clearing up and out.
My mum asked whether I would like to have all of her quilting stuff and I said YES! Who wouldn't?
This is all of her fabric: some ghastly, some beautiful.
I've been going through it: so many memories: old blouses, my dad's shirt, bits of an old skirt of mine.
She also has maps filled with tutorials she learned at guild meetings, like this one, which might look familiar ...
I also found a (8-year old) tutorial on how to make half square triangles easier (like this method 2) and one (dating 1998) on making a twister quilt like this (the tool was included).It seems to me the wheel is invented all over again sometimes, but it may just be that rulers or templates are made now to make the easier method even easier.
Don't you love these flowery fabrics? I do, but not all of them.
They were very popular 25 years ago ...
And there are a lot of orphan blocks: could I make a quilt from them?
Hmm, I need to mull that over ....
If you have a suggestion: don't hold back and tell me.
