From Ucki

Sunny and quiet ….starts with us today the May
So I dug something out of the corner for hand sewing, which for several years
awaiting completion and was really unjustly somewhat neglected by me.
It started with the fact that I collected ties. The beautiful silky, shiny fabrics with their old-fashioned patterns had done it to me
I asked Dick and Harry if she was some discarded ties have for me?
Yeah, we could have! ! Came but nothing
Then I put an ad in a local newspaper:
! “search old ties for patchwork” And then I could not save myself
. Countless ties I picked up at nice people
meantime, unfortunately passed away my father, so I had now ties that were very dear to my heart!Suddenly I got from relatives and acquaintances ties. This unfinished quilt thus consists of ties of living and dead men! That I know or knew me and total strangers!
Therefore I call this quilt  “foreign and familiar!”


This Grandmothers Flower Garden I made 20 years ago!


I wish you all a beautiful Mai!

 

Bounce Bordered Finally!

From this…                                                     To this.

And this…

To this.

So happy to finally have this quilt top done.  I absolutely love it.  It was tons of piecing work.  Over 560 squares not including the border.  This design by Carrie from Miss Rosie’s Quilt company is just gorgeous and the scrappy border is perfect for it.  I’ll be remembering this border for future use.  This was a labour of love and I can’t wait to get it quilted up!
