In 2018 one of my resolutions was to sew all my quilts that year from fabric in my stash. I was more successful than I expected and it really wasn't that hard to do. "Ella" was the last quilt pieced in 2018 and came from my stash of batiks. I had a large number of cream batik 4" squares that I had cut for another quilt and the other batiks had been collected over the past 6-8 years. The pattern called for using charm squares but I changed all the squares to 4".
I was broken hearted when Melinda called and told me she was having a lumpectomy. Even more so when she called less than two weeks later telling me of her upcoming second surgery. She's back at school already and the two surgeries and month of daily radiation have take a toll on her. I was so excited when I finished the quilt, I forgot to take pictures. Luckily, her husband took some for me! She loves it and that is all that matters to me.
One of my favorite tales is that of Cinderella. In 2015 a new version came out and i was hooked. Recently i baby sat for a freind and you guessed it,popcorn and a movie was the plan. We picked Cinderella, i did not influence in any way, as we watched my friend pulled out a blanket. Mine you i live in Florida so not cold because of weather, but because of the air conditioner. It hit me then to make a Cinderella quilt. Well this is the start
