After Holiday Plans

vintage topPaternal side: Great Gram Sadie & Great Aunt Lillie’s blocks with white filler blocks.    DD#1 is sending me more of their hand sewn blocks so that I can make a larger quilt.

That is how I start planning my next quilt…

  1. checking what I have in my stash.
  2. choosing something I really want to see how it will look when finished.
  3. Make sure I have all materials needed to complete this project
  4. Do some shopping when I can’t find needed items for this project
  5. Make a List.. Check it twice!!
