Taking the Old and Making It New Again

Several years ago, a friend gave me these nine patch blocks.  Some of the nine patch blocks are hand pieced and some are machine sewn.

The quilts I work on seem pretty simple, but I have to admit my favorite thing to do is to take older quilt blocks and piece them together…turning the old blocks into a useful quilt.  It brings me great pleasure to see a project come to fruition.

This quilt covers a queen size bed and will look like a charmer when it is quilted.

On another note, I can’t believe it’s November 20th already.  Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  I’m looking forward to catching up with a few friends over the next couple of weeks and making a trip to the East Coast sometime in the near future.

Blessings on your week!
