Treasures from the Past.

I was looking for something else when I came across this treasure. This Dresden plate was given to me by a friend who was cleaning out her mother's sewing room. This dear friend does not sew and told me. I don't know what to do with this and I know you do. So I added the bright yellow center and made a pillow. I need to get a bigger pillow form but this gives you and idea of what this cheery pillow looks like. She also gave me these hst. Don't you just love these wonderful fabrics. I think I will incorporate them into the challenge I am doing with Lyn.
With these wonderful grandmother's garden blocks. Thank you Lyn.


Also in my dear friends bundle were these quarter circles. I think I'm going to have to draw from the ever inspiring Jacquie and make a circle quilt.

Oh how the list of I really want to make that quilt grows. I better live a long and productive life so I can make a dent in it. hee hee.
