I love any kind of fabric that looks vintage. I believe these fat quarters are considered the Thirties look. I have been collecting these for a couple of years and want to use them in a QAL over at Moose on the Porch. I need to find 6 more fat quarters in these similar colors, hopefully over the next two weeks. I am behind four blocks and I thought if I could start in the next week I would do two blocks a week and catch up. I bought the background fabric a couple of weeks ago. Washed and ready. If you would like to join in late to the same QAL you can go here to catch up. http://moosequilts.blogspot.com/2011/08/fat-quarter-stars-quilt-along.html
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
