The month of July was spent celebrating birthdays! We've got 5 birthdays in July, and now it's already August and the kids are starting to talk about going back to school! I thought they just got out for the summer? Where did all the time go?
My Gammill Statler has been busy! I get so excited for my customer's to see their quilts as soon as they are done that I keep forgetting to take pictures! I know I have to stop that! I did take a few really special ones that I can't wait to share!
This quilt in particular is really special. These Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks were put together by a number of different people, some were hand pieced some were machine pieced but the owner never got a chance to put them all together into a quilt. The family thought they were doing the right thing by washing them (yes that wasn't a typo) and drying them only to have them ravel and turn into a huge mess! My customer took this mess of blocks and painstakenly pressed them and then topped stitched them to white material. When completed it really was a wonderful labor of love.
Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
