Quilt Faster! Faster!
Today is Easter Sunday, and I am plugging away at it--37 blocks in three days, and still a few more hours until bed time!
These patterns, and others in the box, all seem to have come from Progressive Farmer magazine, which is still being published (and also has a very up-to-date website). They don't seem to have any quilt patterns included any more, which makes me long just a bit for those "good old days"--until I think of all the riches a quilter can find on the internet.
Here's one more of the designs in the box:
Isn't this design adorable?
I remember when newspapers would have sewing and quilting patterns advertised in the classified section of the paper. Sometimes they offered the iron on transfers by Aunt Martha, I think. In fact, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution had a column on sewing in the Sunday paper for a good many years after I got married. When I see my mother tomorrow, I'm going to ask her whether she has any patterns or newspaper clippings tucked away somewhere--maybe there's another treasure like this one, just waiting around the corner, ready to jump on my quilting "to do" list!
I hope you were blessed today by remembering that He is Risen! Hallelujah! What a Savior!
