Just for my friend Norma....

Of Random Stitches *VBS* The Christmas card I received from Norma had a FQ tucked inside it. She wrote that she wanted me to have a piece of fabric from her, and it gave her a smile to think about some of that piece in my quilts. Norma, you don't have to wait forever for that dream to happen. I've made up one of the Kitchen Sink units(top one) and will include it in the KS I'm making for ME! The 4 patch(below) will be tucked into one of double 4 patch quilts I'm working on...*VBS* You'll always be there, in my quilt and in my heart...thank you *VBS*
Finn been so very good lately, and soooo very busy getting organized I decided to give her a 'play' day today *S* And this is part of what is happening on the cutting board. Can you guess?
It might just be something from this lovely book I got back in October for my birthday *VBS* I've resisted for so long....
It was hard to choose which one I wanted to make today....but Broken Dishes won! I'm using fabric from my Civil War project box...some scraps I've had since the mid 80's and some I've bought in the past few months. Mine won't be quite as pink, red and blue as the picture suggests. That green just demanded to be used...what's a girl to do????

That is exactly what I hoped you would do. Now you have part of me right there with you in your quilts. There is so much more to a quilt than fabric and batting!

Glad you are rewarding yourself for the hard work. If I ever find the sewing machine again, I plan to do the same! LOL How great to have a book set aside for just this kind of treat. Hope you are having a enjoyable day with all that lovely fabric!

Enjoy your fabric. I love using sentimental fabrics... then again, they are all sentimental as you work with them.

And why wouldn't the green just demand to go into this little quilt? It's going to be darling *s*

Finn - I have some of that purple cat fabric. I will think of you when I use it. Love the organizing spree. When you are finished, would you like to come to my house and show me how its done?

I just love a good broken dishes quilt. That blue and that green are demanding to be used!!! And the red that they're lying upon? Does that get to join the bunch? Mmm...that just all looks terrific! Glad you allowed yourself to have a play day!!! ;-)

It's my opinion that green makes everything look better. God must agree, as we've so much of it! LOL!

What a wonderful little quilt that will be, and Civil War, combined with green, couldn't be more beautiful!

When the fabrics speak, you do have to listen! I do love that book -- need to get a copy!
