My "quilts of thanks" gifts for my family and friends continues!
Two more done. Ready to be loved.
The fabrics for these quilts were acquired some dozen years ago when I made this quilt from a commercial pattern. Its hand quilted!
|A quilt from long ago.|
At the time I was so in love with homespuns that I collected and collected and collected!
And there they sat. For more than a decade!
So, I'm continuing my mission to use up this beautiful fabric.
A third quilt is basted and ready for quilting. All three quilts are simply pieced, a timeless patchwork of five-inch blocks. They're quite lovely actually and will make a great quilt to use on the couch while watching a movie or reading a great book. Nothing quite like a cotton quilt for warmth and comfort.
I'm happy to give these away to my family and friends that I love. And I especially love that I've made something useful and beautiful from all this homespun cotton fabric.

I still have a long ways to go. Plenty of fabric in the stash. And sadly, there's even more fabric tucked away in the closet.
This mission will continue!
