Sounds fun, right? Not so much. I didn’t take a single stitch yesterday as I was too busy cleaning. The up side is that I found a couple quilts I hadn’t seen in a while. This is one inspired by Gwen Marston. I couldn’t find it when I did my announcement for theGwennie Inspired QAL. This one actually appeared in an issue of Quilt Magazine back in the day. It has been washed a gazillion times.
I love the lace curtains in the one on the upper right! The one on the right in the second row was made by a lady who lives Ina very modern looking house. She said if the roof was removed and you looked at her house from above, it would resemble a box of fabric!
At the time, we lived in a 1950s ranch and had just painted it blue.
Daughter #2 loved this quilt. I used to rock her with this quilt and we would make up stories about the people that lived in these houses. It isn’t a “pretty” quilt, or well done. But the memories of sitting with my baby girl mean it’s a keeper.
