This is my very scrappy Dresden plate quilt. You know how I love scrap quilts. There is something very satisfying about using scraps from other quilts.It was made several years ago in response to an "Alpine Group" challenge. I tried to make up something "new" for the border.
I need to get my scrap bin under control right now so maybe this would be a good repeat quilt. It just seems that no matter how many scrap quilts I make, I still have more bits of fabric!This is another quilt I made several years ago. It is sort of a youth bed size. For this one I made more unified fan colors.
I fussy cut the corners with little novelty and toy images. They were so fun to pick out. I love to fussy cut.
To make the fans stand out more I put a plain white block in between my fans. Somehow I felt it was more vintage looking that way.
Here is another fan quilt and this one was made with all vintage fabric fabrics. I purchased a bag of small scraps several years ago and my machine quilter Wren gave me a bag of vintage scraps too. Plus I cut up pieces of some of my smaller cuts of vintage fabric. It ended up being quite busy but I think the green helps balance it out.Many of the fabrics are feed sack. It looks kind of crazy in this picture but it really is a pretty quilt and I love looking at all the vintage fabrics.
Today is Mr. Hive's first day at his new job after a 4 1/2 month lay-off. Yayyy! I'm just so grateful. I hope he likes it. I thank my friends and family for all the moral support and prayers on our behalf. I know there are so many out there still looking for jobs and I hope we all keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
