Gorgeous Weather





What beautiful weather we have been having after a very wet weekend when Hurrican Ike made it's way through Michigan. Lots of places really got lots and lots of rain - I think there was about 3 inches total here in Midland. The last couple of days have really been nice - just the great kind of weather autumn brings.


Will post a few pictures of some small quilts I have made using the reproduction fabrics from the 30's and 40's. There are three of these small pieces and one day they could go to future greatgrandchildren. As I have noted before, I really enjoy using the Aunt Gracie fabrics - they are such pretty colors and darling prints. First one up will be a paperpieced one that I think is called sawblades. The next one is machine buttonhole stitched flowers connected with green vines. Third is one with sunbonnet children and an alphabet and number border.

Carol, I can't figure out how to e-mail you but here is my question and hope it gets to you! I am getting ready to cut out fabric for the Kaffe Fassett Diamond quilt. Yours is beautiful and I am wondering what ruler did you use to cut the diamonds??

Love all three quilts. The flower one has my wheels turning. Must make one like that.
