Vintage can summon up memories from the past. It can remind you of the things you didn't have. Sometimes it can help you complete someone elses dream. I think about these things when I drift up and down the hallways or in and out of houses at sales. Who played with this and why did they keep it? Other times I wonder why some things went unfinished.
This work in progress was found in pieces. I have managed to finish it into a lap size quilt. It was originally hand stitched and I did find remnants of machine stitching.
The fabric feedsacks are crisp and bright. No lingering smell and only a few stains.
Perhaps it is wonky and a bit askew I can't help but think that someone started it and needed me to finish it.
This was my inspiration. If you know me you know I have longed to quilt and tried to quilt with no success...yet. The talented and gifted Miss Renee (yes, another one!) sent me one of her creations. One that she said looked like me.
Her quilter did an amazing job on every little stitch.
Each fabric choice so perfectly matched.
Thank you Renee, I needed this quilt more than you know.
