Lots of color and scrappiness in this HST (half square triangle) quilt.   Looking forward to adding borders and backing.

Selecting fabrics for the next quilt:  Crosses and Losses, a Civil War quilt

Found these depression era dishes in a junk store.  This pattern is Jadeite/Fire King.  Grandmother Rebecca had some of these dishes.  The nice fresh green color will be used for spring and Easter decorations.

BLACK and BLUE--no photo
Wish I could say I was talking about Blackberries and Blueberries for a fruit cobbler pie.  Nope, black and blue describes me.  Was doing some spring cleaning last week and took a fall.  At the sake of dating myself, does anyone remember Chevy Chase and the opening scenes from Saturday Night Live when Chevy did the fall?  Visualize those scenes in your mind,  I was that graceful.  My fall did provide some comic relief from washing windows.


  1. Love your hst quilt. Sooooo beautiful!

  2. Your quilt is beautiful. My mother had jadite dishes. Hope you heal quickly from your bruises. are you coming to the festival? I will be at corner Antiques that day
