First of all I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter holiday, celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It didn't really feel like Easter usually does to me, probably because it was pouring the rain when we got out of church that day. We've been getting some doozy storms and tons of rain lately, but everything is now in FULL bloom and very pretty.
We invited my parents-in-law to eat dinner w/us on Easter and my MIL (a.k.a. ~ this yr's easter bunny)lol, brought me 5 very old quilts. She did NOT make them, but they were in her stash. Only one was good, the other 4 were in pretty bad shape, but she told me I could use them as 'cutter' quilts. I was totally excited nonetheless. Here they are stretched out on the couch ~ these are the 'bad' ones. (Edited to say that I'm only showing you the 'good' sides), LOL.
It will be very very difficult for me to actually cut into these, but I've seen such cute things that some of you have made w/cutter quilts and I'm inspired to say the least. My sweet friend Christine, from Preferably Prim has recently made some very cute items for spring w/some of her cutters.
This one was the only old quilt out of the bunch that was in pretty good shape, so I ended up putting it in our b'room since it's done in a quilt theme.
You can tell how old they are by the stitching and looks like they've been washed a lot over the yrs.
Can you tell which one is the old one?? LOL
Also, our doggie BJ celebrated his 6th b'day last wk. on Apr. 20th. We got him when he was 9 wks. old and back then, he was all ears. He has sure filled out since then. ha
This is what he does when he wants a treat ~ he goes over to the cabinet where I keep his treats and stares at it until I give him one. But his all-time favorite treats are mini carrots, raw. I feel like I'm feeding a guinea pig! LOL
Next time I hope to share some more zippy bags I've been making lately and also round 2 of my TB quilt blocks, so keep checking back.
Here's your quote for today ~ "Girlfriends are a gift from God, and the beauty within them is His reflection."
Have a great week everyone, hope yours is not too soggy! LOL
