A box was found! What could be in it...hmmm, I remember a project from a long, long, time ago!
Twelve blocks, green leaves, colored thread, and a hoop
Tulip flowers! A favorite thing to see in the spring!!
Yes sirree, one finished quilt block, 11 to go. The whole thing done by hand by me. No wonder I never finished it! I think that I even thought of cheating, and doing the work by machine. I probably would have had it done by now. How long ago was this you ask? As I hang my head in shame, sigh, I worked on this over 20 years ago!!
All of this was a labor of love. My grandmother wrote down all the directions for me, and cut all of it out. It was a gift placed in my hands to one day remind me of her, and her love of sewing. She also has a love of gardening too! The sewing and painting are done when she can't be outside with her first love!
So as I look upon this I can say it is a reminder of love. It would definitely give me a lot of patience if I finished the rest of it by hand!!! Well, yes or no? By machine it would be done, and I would have at least one block done by hand. We shall see, we shall see.
