I'm thinking about a checkerboard next, with little colored hourglass triangles in alternate corners.

It's kind of amusing.  I decided that I had not been making quilts using 4.5" blocks so I was on a mission to use up all the precut squares I had stashed.  Which I did use about 80% of them.  And ever since what quilts have I been making?  Quilts with 4.5" blocks.  Aggggh.  So I think I'm going to go ahead and cut some extras this time through my stash.  I'm getting tired of cutting and refolding over and over.

Making a quilt from your stash is always nice.  

Yes it is!  I really need to use up/give away some of my stash.

Mine were done years ago and I have never regretted it.

That's always good to hear!

It got First place at the quilt guild, then went to the county fair

where it got: 1st Place, and Best of Show as well as fair theme ribbon.  I named it, “The Garden Wall”. In remembrance of my Mom’s and Gram’s sweet pea trellises that we’re against a wall of the house.  I was so thrilled about this one.

I’ve been so busy the past few months.  I was in charge of our Guild Retreat this year.  It had been scheduled for April but circumstances arose and we postponed it until August.  Well it was a success.  The ladies had a great time and together we got a quilt top together.  Now I just need to sandwich and quilt it.  It will be given to the guild for our quilt auction in Sept. 2020.

How wonderful that a quilt that has so much sentimental meaning to you now has so much "glory" awarded to it because of your excellent quilt making skills and artistic eye.  I am sure that your Mom and your Gram are delighted that they were the inspiration for this lovely work of art.
