Now I can share because the packages have been received.
The first three quilts are ones made by my niece's MIL or other relative. They were found in storage. The first seems to have somewhat of a logical pattern. The second one actually looks like several different quilts and would be what I call a "very" utilitarian quilt. It has cotton, wool, satin, embossed and some other fabric that I could not identify. Based on certain aspects of the fabrics, I could tell that the pieces were from used clothing. Obviously, this quilt top was made by a thrifty, early era recycler. Basically, it was made to keep someone warm.
There was another part on the quilt, but I had to remove it because my niece plans to use these, and the part I removed had tears and worn areas that would not have held up.
From the part I removed I made a doll size quilt, so that nothing was left unused.
The last quilt has not had its binding stitched because I left that to my sister. She has read my blog for months and has also checked out Mary's site on a regular basis. That is where she found the Framed Rectangles pattern. It will look great in her grandson's new bedroom.
Now I am working on some other personal projects and a few of my FIL's embroidered works. More pictures will be posted soon.
After being away for 31 years, we are finally home again. We are South Dakotans through and through, so this is were we want to spend our "retirement" years. My husband and I are getting ready to open a custom woodworking business with me being the paper pusher and the woodworker's apprentice. Along with that I am going to continue quilting and also work as a substitute teacher. Life is good!
