Here are a few things I recently found in my attic. I don't really know why there were there.
This is a top. The blocks were made my members of my group in Illinois. The theme was "anything to do with a chicken". Aren't they terrific?
I made the middle block on the bottom. (sorry, it was a cloudy day an the light was bad.)
Here is a little feed sack panel I purchased at the quilt show recently. I have a dream of having laying hens when I move. Maybe I can hang these in the coop.
Here is one of my favorite quilts. I made it commemorate Hanna's 6th Birthday. She was born on June 6th (6/6) and turned 6 in '99 so it was her golden birthday bonanza of 6s and 9s.
Here are our hand prints at the time, and my little blue bird.
We called her "miss" when she was little and I designed this dandellion seed flower.
It is hand quilted and it still makes me smile. Here is the back. All the junk food a 6 year old girl loves.
Tonight Sharon Schamber is visiting our guild and tomorrow I'm taking her workshop on machine quilting. Here are the 2 little tops that we had to make to practice on. I'll show you how I did soon.
Have you ever found quilts or tops you had forgotten about?
Have a Great Week !
