I can't remember how many years ago I made this. I'm wondering what to do with it now as it's too pretty to toss out. Maybe cut the squares out and sash them?? Any ideas - does anyone know how the colour lasts. Will it wash out after a few washes??
My daughter Haylee made me a huge wallhanging for my 40th birthday. She was doing a learners sewing class and one day she had a book home from the library. I said I liked the quilt with the Beryl Cook painting (a buxom girl in bikinis) in it. So surprise surprise on the night she had made the buxom lady and surrounded it with blocks - everyone in the family chose what they wanted on a block.
That was a long time ago and some of the 'fabrics' have worn out. The buxom girl has become a saggy girl and so I decided it was time to part. But I saved the best blocks.
My aunt and Uncle chose a book because when my cousin passed away I gave them a lovely book to write memories in. The book was filled within a few months with stories and memories from all his family and friends. My aunt loved that book hence the choice of block.
I think this was a filler block showing off my love of fancy dress costume parties. Hmm I haven't seen those legs and the little bottom for a long long time!@!!
And lastly my daughter Annette's choice was the BMW or Peace sign (that's what her transplant scar is shaped like and commonly known as). Forgot about the buttons on it. More for my stash. Has anyone seen my button blog. I need to update it more regularly but I only have 2 followers so far.
