Just spiffing up the porch tonight for company...here is one of the very first quilts I made. Years ago, our local quilt store was ahead of its time -- they had pre-cut charm squares of Debbie Mumm Halloween fabrics & neutrals.
I drew some of the shapes on a piece of paper & used a lightbox to transfer them onto the fabric and then quilted them in black. Easy & fun. It looks like my corners matched up. Charm squares are a good way to ease new quilters into the process. (Just got some cute ones in from Mary Engelbreit and Sandy Gervais.)
The orange and white quilt I leave up all year. It's an autograph quilt that Des found. Endearing...the names are "Aunt Opal, Ada, Mildred, Clara, Peg, Myrna....Hazel." I don't know when it was made or by whom. But it has found a home and each of these sweet ladies is remembered.
