Scrappy Star Quilt
I wanted to change the quilt on my quilt hanger. But first I had to remove everything off my sideboard and then dust. Then rearrange and put away some of my things. I keep telling myself I need to downsize but then I'll see something that I can't live without and my collections end up a bit crowded. It sure looks nice when its dusted.
I love the scrappy reds and creams in this quilt. Scrappy quilts are definitely my favourites. Need to stop buying full fabric ranges cause quilts in one range aren't the quilts I like to make.....Need to stop buying fabric altogether. One day.
I also can't resist a cruet set. I'm partial to any cut glass or crystal and I've got a few of these now. They remind me of having dinner at my Grandparents house when I was a young girl. My Grandmother had a little dish with salt and a tiny little spoon to use with the salt, a very novel idea. Then there was the dish of butter curls, haven't seen them for a long time. Does anyone curl butter any more?
I did get a start on my first applique border for my jubilee quilt. Might manage a photo next time.
Bye for now
