Here it is! This little baby has been in the works for a while; I decided it was time to make those border decisions and finish it off! I had it done in time to take to Show and Tell at my monthly Guild meeting last night. Years ago, I subscribed to Miniature Quilts magazine for several years. I still have quite a list of minis I would like to make, from that stack of magazines.... this is one that caught my eye years ago and I finally got back to it!! It is from Issue #18, Summer of 1995. They called it "Along the Wilderness Trail"... I think I'll come up with my own name... Any suggestions? It is 9" square, the pieced blocks in the border are 1". The pieced blocks are paper-pieced, as this is the only way to do blocks this tiny, accurately. I have quilted in the ditch, again minimally.
I have been remiss in not saying a HUGE thank you to my friend Gail who has helped me set up this blog. Although she has gone south with the "snowbirds" for a while, she is still helping me from afar...Thanks Gail, I could not have done it without you... I also must thank my daughter Laura for being my "home Tech Support"... She gets tired of showing me how to do something more than once.. I remind her that my brain is not 17 years old and it takes time for things to "sink in".... I tease her that I'm not going to allow her to go away to University next Fall, because who will help me when I have a computer "problem"..??? haha Thanks Laura, love ya darlin'... Speaking of Laura going away, she got her first University acceptance this morning. Yeah! What a great way to start the day!
Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try....
