A QUILT TO FINISH

 
THIS PATTERN IS CALLED A TISKET, A TASKET
AUNT ROMA'S GARDEN BASKET
BY PRIMITIVE PIECES BY LYNDA.
I BROKE MY RIGHT ANKLE A FEW YEARS AGO AND
SINCE I HAD TO MEND OVER THE WINTER I DECIDED
TO TRY AND USE MY LEFT FOOT TO MACHINE PIECE THE TOP
TOGETHER AND IT WORKED! WE CAN ALWAYS FIND
A WAY IF WE SET OUR MINDS TO IT. :-)
I MADE MINE SCRAPPY WITH JUST THREE COLORS.
REDS, BLACKS AND TANS.

 
YEARS AGO I BELONGED TO A QUILT GROUP
AT OUR LOCAL MUSEUM AND I CONTACTED
LYNDA TO GET A TRUNK SHOW OF HER QUILTS
FOR OUR SHOW. THIS IS A PICTURE I TOOK OF
HER ORIGINAL QUILT. I JUST FELL IN LOVE
WITH IT. MY TOP HAS BEEN IN THE CLOSET LONG
ENOUGH. I'M THINKING THIS WINTER IS
THE PERFECT TIME TO APPLIQUE THE FLOWERS,
STEMS AND LEAVES AND GET IT HAND QUILTED.
THE APPLIQUES ARE BIGGER SO IT WILL BE FUN
TO DO. BUT I PROBABLY WON'T START UNTIL AFTER
MY NEXT UPDATE, WHICH I AM WORKING ON NOW.
 
ENJOY YOUR DAY AND STAY WARM!
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI
