When did this happen


Sometime in the past few years I must have had a real 1930's fetish...only I don't remember it?! I knew I had picked up some of the fabric for a donation quilt and made a few baby quilts but as I pack they just keep appearing! This around the world was done from squares traded on an internet exchange from before I moved to Georgia so I'm guessing...1995!? Why didn't I finish it?I have no idea.

I found a smaller version of the same quilt...a project for a silent auction maybe? At least 6 years old...not quite sure. There are at least four other tops, a box of blocks and a case of "less than fat quarter" pieces. Reproduction fabrics I have bags full. I just didn't think of the 30's fabrics as something I had hoarded! I guess as I'm cleaning out the closets I'm learning a bit about my own "quilting past."

In ohter news...my DH and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary yesterday. We went to dinner and watched the final episode of 24 while the Boston/Yankees Game was in the small screen. Thankfully the Red Sox won!

What fun finds! Isn't it always surprising what we forget about when we clean out our quilting stuff!

Sometimes it's downright scary to dig into our sewing stash! Who knows what UFO's we're going to find. But then, sometimes, we find treasures! I think these belong in the treasures category. If you don't want them, I'll send you my address ;o). Congrats on the anniversary!

The real question is, do you still like them and are you going to keep them? Congrats on the anniversary.

Congrats on your anniversary. A question, though...why are you "YankeeQuilter" if you're a Red Sox fan? :o) I'll be going to see the Phillies/Yankees next month and will be rooting for the Yankees...too many years in NY! My son went to the Phillies/Red Sox game over the weekend..he's a diehard Sox fan. We have some interesting dinner conversations!
