A forgotten quilt :(
I finished the hand quilting and binding on this little quilt. Perfect for a candle mat!
I made the back like this, so I could have a rod hanger, if I wanted to, and plus I can write the label information on those little triangles.
I found this quilt, forgotten in my closet...poor pink quilt!! It is humongous! So it went on the bed, and I found the date...1990. Time to use it up, don't you think??? It was carefully folded and had tissue in the layers...who knows what I was thinking back then! It is certainly not an heirloom.
All matchy-matchy and made of the pink of the time. Huge pieces, too. I like it because it is HUGE!! King sized!!
Speaking of cleaning out closets, I found this shirt, painted for me by one of my fellow nurse, Camille Wood. It is dated 1992. She used fabric paints, which really has held up well for so many years. I loved it so much, I carefully put it away, and it really looks new!! This one is a keeper...and so is Camille, one of my best nursing friends. I just found her again on Facebook!
