With Autumn blowing it's damp chill winds this week (in the 50's during the day!) it is quilt time. I love quilts and I am currently working on a couple for some very special girls:>) This quilt was a flea market find this summer for $1. You might think I got a bargain to see it now, but then it was a uniform stained brown and had a scent that encouraged us to drive home with the windows down. I soaked it outside for a couple days in Biz, and when I pulled it out of the (murky) water it was sparkling white and I could see the hand embroidered squares much more clearly. It turned out to be a great deal and I have spent several evenings snuggled on the couch with it with the windows open, and used it for an outdoor concert in the park.
Now this little lovely is in the current issue of Quilt Sampler magazine and I am in love with it! It looks simple enough for a beginner and I have it on my project list for this winter. The dotted line led to a larger picture of the cherries which are made of yo-yo's and ric rac. Love it! The colors, the cherries, the little kitchen sign under it (bet I can make that too!) Oh, I am hopeless when it comes to adding projects to my already full schedule but I can't help myself. So now you have a peek at what I hope to be making a fall and winter project. Any projects on your list for this winter?
