My Grandma (the one that recently passed) was very talented when it came to knitting, sewing, and growing flowers (among a lot of other talents). She could grow just about any flower you could think of. Her lilacs were absolutely gorgeous.
She also carried her love of flowers over into her fabric choices. Lots of florals in many shades and styles. As my Mom and I are really the only ones that shared a crafting love with Grandma, we inherited her crafting stash. Last week my Mom dropped off three boxes of fabric that are now mine.
I’ll save the other boxes for another post as what I decided to work on uses mostly what’s pictured above. I spent a couple days thinking about the fabrics and options. I wanted to do a quilt or at least a throw using just fabrics that were Grandma’s.
After tossing around ideas, browsing Pinterest, etc, I finally decided to stick with something simple. So I started cutting:
Then I started sewing and a little more cutting:
First one block came together:
And then the second:
I don’t know if I’ll sew them together side by side or put a sash between each block of nine. I’ll decide that once I get more blocks finished.
