The Quilter’s Stash!

I wish I had a Quilter’s Stash.  I know a few quilter’s that could open their own fabric store with their stash.  Recently, I had a daughter of a quilter that was making a baby quilt for the first grand-daughter.  The mother has her daughter pick out fabric from her stash. The soon to be grandmother already had one ready for this day and she is hand-quilting hers.  No, the daughter is not a quilter, but we are hoping she gets the bug.  The daughter tells of the time her mother was in the hospital and she had to get clothes for her, and in EVERY place she looked, she found fabric. Fabric stashed here, tucked there and hidden over there. And what quilter doesn’t have a story about where she got THAT piece of fabric.  With a piece of fabric picked out, and oh too pretty to cut up, she decided to just add a border.  She picked a soft fluffy mint green for the backing fabric and wanted it quilted with large flowers.  A simple but elegant baby quilt made with love.

    Thank You for posting the quilt! It truly was a great memory for me working with my Mom on picking out the fabrics and putting it together. The quilting pattern that you put in the quilt was perfect! Thank you again for all your help. Susan
