One Done

This one was on last week’s to-do list. The tops was made in the 70’s, and I quilted and bound it. I delivered it to the church today since the owner (Marilyn) is in my sewing group. 

It’s about 80” x 104”. I can’t remember exactly. Marilyn’s mom sewed all her clothes, and this quilt is made from the scraps. The fabrics are really heavy—the backing fabric was also heavy—sort of a twill weave.

Marilyn has had the top and backing pieces in a box in her closet for all these years, and she decided it might not survive the next generation if it wasn’t quilted. In other words, the kids would find a box of unquilted fabrics in the closet after she is gone and throw it away. I hope she will be happy with the way this turned out.

I personally think it is hard to predict what our kids will value when we are gone. I know mine are much more likely to dispose of things than I am, and they don’t like a lot of things cluttering up their home. 

Today I will be back in my shop after a brief break (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday). I need to get some work done on the commission quilt I have, and there a couple of people who want to drop off things for me to quilt. I’m sure there are other thing I need to get done, but I can’t remember what they are.
