Oh Look what wonders you find when you dig deep and clean out the closet! I emptied the closet in my sewing room while re-organizing and found a few things I had forgot about! This little 9 patch top was buried in a box at the back of the closet, I made the little 9 patches while visiting my grandmother back in the 60's! Yup was sewing back then. I rediscovered them in the late eighties and sewed them together and then put it away again, I added the border yesterday and today I will quilt it, won't it make a cute table topper?
I also found Sweet Peas, from a workshop I took with Nancy Pearson back in 2002, now I need to work on that also. I tool a 3 day workshop with her at the American quilt museum in Paducah, and it's where I really learned how to applique.
Another top I found was my very first attempt at applique, the pattern is from Baltimore Bouquets by Mimi Dietrich, oh my stitches were terrible, I can't decide if I want to redo it or just go ahead and quilt it, it shows just how far I have come.
