I am new to quilting and I am very proud of my first few projects. I was recently inspired by my 88 year old aunts quilt made of patchwork girls (I later found was called sun bonnet sue) using fabrics from her dresses she wore as a little girl. I enjoyed the excitement in her eyes as she recalled every patch and remembered her childhood dresses. I plan on making one of these quilts and although I do not have a dress collection to use for my patches, I do so love my fabric collection and will enjoy selecting just the right ones for my special quilt. If I only have some nice thread to sew them on with........
Those colours!! I could eat them. I'd love to make a granny square quilt
