A Baby Quilt

Baby quilts are fun to make.  Small, cute, and fast to complete. Kind of an instant gratification quilt.  My friend Muriel has a new grandson, and when I came across this French bunnies fabric, I could not resist :)

More Vintage Quilt Tops

I found this pretty quilt top on Etsy.  It is a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.  The seller had it for many years, and decided to part with it.  I like it so much, I think I’ll be keeping this one :) A couple more quilts made of vintage quilt tops.  I find tops that I […]
