On The Way
I created this blog, familypatchworks, to journalize my quilting projects and quilting thoughts. I named if familypatchworks because I have an appreciation for vintage fabrics, quilts, quilt blocks, quilters and the history/story that surrounds all quilting projects. I like using found orphan blocks in my art quilts for that very reason.
This little whole cloth cheater fabric is a joy for me to "complete". You see, I did not start this quilt. It was started by a woman, who has since passed and had no great-grandchildren. Her first great-granddaughter will be born in Mid-November and the grandmother to-be asked me to complete the project. We have found it very interesting that the quilt is pink, at the time it was started there were no hints of a grand child in the future.
Just one of the many wonderful stories I have stumbled on to since starting this blog, years ago.
Happy Quilting everyone!!!
