All good things must come to an end.
Bee Hive hairdos?
Well, maybe that was a good thing to end!
For me this week it was
finally finishing my
leaders and enders quilt.
A 17 UFO's in 2017 project.
Happy Memories Quilt
60" x 66"
It all started last summer with a free
It was to be a fun summer project.
I decided it was time to dig into my scrap bags and
use only what was there.
A couple of large trash bags worth of
pieces had taken over a large portion of a closet.
It was time to use it or
pass it on.
It took a lot of cutting,
and a long time sewing.
I used the leaders and enders approach
and kept working on it for well over a year.
There were lozenger blocks ( 2"x 6") to make along with
and broken dishes (3") and nine patches (4.5").
Combine all those different fabrics together
and what do you get?
A quilt filled with happy memories.
A quilt made with
fabric pieces from so many past quilts.
It was a trip down memory lane.
It was machine quilted by my friend, Debi,
who kept the swirling feather pattern simple.
When it came to the binding,
it had to be scrappy too.
I found tucked away in the hidden part of a cupboard
some binding pieces
wrapped sweetly on antique wooden spools.
Use them up!
Yes, all good things do need to come to an end.
Don't you agree?
Until Next Time-
