Nothing like a sunny Saturday in April *VBS* Our first, of this still new year. And tomorrow is my middle sister's birthday...A big Happy Birthday to you Katie-Did! Don't ask what she did, I won't tell *VBS* I won't tell what she 'didn't either. A couple of weeks back, my sweet friend Julie, at JulieQ Quilts, asked us what our oldest UFO was. I bravely stepped up and showed the assorted blocks of my Indian Hatchet(with the tea dye background). I know that pattern as Paths To Piece, and began the quilt years ago after making one square as a President's block for our guild leader. Needless to say, I didn't finish enough for a whole quilt.
After showing them, I debated with myself, but found NO desire to complete it as a quilt. It then became the foundation of a new Orphan Train Quilt. I've pulled out other odds and ends, and some donatated blocks and bits. This is where it's at so far. I've got the 60" length, and am working my way across to achieve the 40" width for WTIL.
It dictated to me early on that any "white" or "very light" background was NOT going to work....and I'm listening, for a change.
