WELCOME to the First Yester-Year Linky Party!
The Quilt Monster is happily helping me pull projects out from the dark corners of the Closet…
I am excited to have you join in the fun….and looking forward to seeing your projects!!!
I hope there is lots of sharing of those temporarily Lost, but not Forgotten Projects.
Today…I have Two Projects to share….
My first is a project that has been sitting in a Ziploc bag for over 15 years. I hand pieced all the applique on wool felt back around 1997. YEP…I was in shock when I found this yester-year treasure hiding in a tote. The pattern is was called Folk Art Sampler and it was dated 1995, I found a receipt in the bag that indicates a time line of 1997… I am Amazed I let it sit unfinished for SOoo Long..!! What was I thinking!!!!
Back in the late 90’s, I would regularly meet up with some great gals, The Monday Night Sew-N-Sews. We shared stories and did all kinds of quilting together, we helped each other with projects, and did swaps among the 6 of us. I miss them and unfortunately we’ve all moved in different directions.. *sad face*. To finish this treasure is a great memory of the fun we had! I did my own alterations to the pattern. I’ve designed it so that I can display it in my Table Topper Quilt Rack. Just a simple finish of combining all the blocks together, a little trimming and it fits perfect!
Here it is among a few of my Spring Flowers popping up in my flower beds *wink*
My second Yester-Year project is my Spring Fresh quilt. These fabrics have been in my stash for well over 5 years… I guess I was waiting for a quilt pattern to call them out of the stash… and I am so happy they found their way into this wonderful completion. You can read more about the pattern I used HERE. I love how crisp they look with the white background fabrics. *giggle* I was excited to get it finished this week. I finished the Top last Thursday night and worked on basting and quilting it this past weekend….and the sun came out on Monday so I was able to play a bit with my camera skills in the front yard.. A few fun pics and practice taking photos.
Now Let’s see your Yester -Year Projects… How far along are you???
Did you get one finished…or just worked a bit on it… I wanna know *giggle*
