I signed up for Pat Sloans GRANDMA'S KITCHEN SEW ALONG on June 28, 2017 (well actually a tad bit earlier than that...but not exactly sure). I had tried to do a couple of her other sew along's and failed miserably due to life in general. I am hoping that life has settled down enough that I can keep up with this one!
The block pictured below is titled "Half A Modern" by Pat. She gives a wonderful descriptive story about Why she names her blocks what she does and how it relates to one or both of her Grandmothers Kitchens. She asks that we share a part of our memories with her. Only, sadly due to my memory loss, I really can not do that. I think that is another reason I also really want to complete this quilt. I may explain later, but not now.
Block 4 "HALF A MODERN"
This is Block 5 titled...Glasses and Cups. I have chosen a wide variety of fabrics for this Sew Along with Pat Sloan. I have chosen 2 main fabrics with Fruits, plus a third main fabric with small red apples as my backing fabric but if needed it can easily be used in the blocks also. I have also chosen a wide variety of fabrics ranging from solids to the one below featuring the large variety of apples with black as the background.
I have also chosen a wide variety of fabrics ranging from solids to the one below featuring the large variety of apples with black as the background. Being that my blocks are rather on a sort of "scrappy" choice, I went ahead and chose white on white as my main block fabric. Yet, I also have used several different selections that I have available. It always feels wonderful to use up bits and pieces of scraps! So all in all, I am having a great time with this Sew Along.
This is my quilt top at this stage...all blocks are sewn together into rows into the Double Sized Quilt Top! I think it turned out spectacular! Of course, each Scrappy Mystery Quilt I have participated in of Carole's from From My Carolina Home Blog has been a favorite and all of them are loved dearly! I have not decided how to finish this one off. Carole has a great detailed border included in her pattern, but the room and bed that this quilt will be covering, the border would be lost. So, I am trying to figure out something else. Yet, it may be quite awhile due to the fact that I am working on three other quilts at this time. My oh My, what did I get myself into?
Thank you for stopping by! I love to receive comments and I respond as soon as I am able! Have a great day! Brenda
