I don't know about you, but I love frequenting the thrift shops in town. You never know what treasure you'll find. Sure, you have to comb through piles of junk, I mean stuff, but once in a while you come across something that makes the searching worthwhile. Speaking of finds, I'm always digging through the vintage cotton sheets, looking for good ones to use for donation quilts. One day I came across two lavender polka dotted vintage Pottery Barn duvet covers. Jackpot!! Those immediately went into my basket as I knew that they would make great baby quilts. I just finished sewing the binding on three donation baby quilts using the cotton fabric from those duvet covers :-)
Reading the modern quilt books inspired me to enlarge the blocks to 24 inches (61 cm) and then all I needed to do was to choose the quilt block. The friendship star block won out this time around and this is my version:
Our garden is putting on a nice spring show-
I thought that I'd drop off the baby quilts at the women's shelter in downtown Boise while I'm out cycling today in the lovely spring sunshine.
Enjoy your weekend,
