Another dead person story for you.
A lady in one of the small guilds I am in died. Her husband does not quilt and wants to move to a smaller house. All boys, no girl children in the family.
So he calls up the guild and says come get all this fabric!
So tonight the guild unloaded about 2/3 of what they had taken from his house. It filled two SUV backs and back seats. I bought home a whole front seat full of fabric. Like I needed more.
She was an older more traditional person. So the fabrics are not really modern or contemporary but they will be fabulous for backings. She had groups of blocks already together probably UFOs, did a lot of embroidery and had about 20 or so quilts already cut out.
The guild asked that we make a number of these for their charity choice of the Veteran's Home in Jackson LA.
So there all 15 of us, pawing through boxes and boxes of this lady's fabric, thinking when I die someone will be doing this with MY fabric.......and probably will find some of this fabric in there too.
So I guess I will have to do some Charity Quilts for the Vets.
And find a place for all this fabric................
