Yesterday I shared a couple of photos of my new project in which I am piecing together 10″ x 10″ blocks of appliquéd motifs that my mom hand-stitched starting in 1987. 6.9.2015A Originally, she just wanted me to sew the blocks together side by side, but I wanted the motifs to stand out a little more.  I went to the local independent fabric shop and selected a yellow cotton print that I thought would go well with the blocks.  I did some measuring and cutting, and the quilt top started to take shape. 6.9.2015B
