I use it all the time so I always feel justified when I have to add a piece or two (or 24...lol) to my stash.
These are the new fat quarters that I added most recently. I got them at Quilts Etc. when I went to Clothesline Club there. They have a fabulous selection and regularly order in new lines.
1930's fabrics are close to my heart because they bring back lots of memories of my Great Grandma Butterfield's quilts. I was born 4 years after she passed away so I never knew her in this life, but yet I feel like I did through her quilts.
I remember one of her quilts most if all....She made all of her grandaughters (of which my Mother was one) a double wedding ring quilt for when they were married.
My mother kept her quilt on her bed when I was very young and one of the earliest memories that I have is laying on that quilt. The squares in the intersection of each ring are blue and coral and the rest of the patches were made from floursack prints.
All of the different prints and bright cheerful colors just facinated me.
I remember that I used to play kind of a "matchgame" by trying to find 2 pieces alike.
I know that way back then is when my love of color and patchwork quilts began...
