Betty’s blocks?

Published / by Mary / 3 Comments on Betty’s blocks?

My memory is getting so bad — I think these blocks were pieced by Betty and the top assembled by me in March at the HeartStrings sew in.

It’s quilted with freehand swirls and has a pieced binding. I don’t always take the time to assemble leftover binding bits into one long strip but the last two quilts I’ve bound have had pieced bindings and they’re a great way to finish off scrap quilts and use up those leftovers.

It was all about geneaolgy today. First at home this morning requesting copies of records I can’t find online and then volunteering at the library this afternoon/evening.

I also reviewed some letters that were passed along to me that gives my great-great grandfather’s first name. I’ll have to confirm that the information is correct but hopefully It will help me track him down.

Tomorrow it’s back to binding and quilting.
