I'm Channeling my Mom...

My Mom loved to quilt and never passed up a bargain on material...
....and so there I was browsing Cheryl's booth at House at 755 when I was immediately drawn to this pretty bundle

106!! of them measuring 6x6 each

FRENCH LAUNDRY said...

That is so cool. I am your newest follower. I scrolled through some of your other posts and had to LOL at the Target grain sack towel story. I did the same thing! They are okay in my decor, but it was as though I was possessed-MUST HAVE THEM! I bought FOUR! I thought about giving 2 away as a giveaway, but then just washed them up and decided to use them anyway. The power of suggestion, right?

Have a great day,
Judy

I love Rachel Ashwell fabrics, I see you have a few of them and can't wait to see your finished project. Thanks so much for visiting me and in answer to your question about my shiny floors is that this flooring wasn't finished till all that long ago and the room itself isn't in constant traffic like the rest of my home! take care, Maryann

sweetpea said...

thank you for leaving me a comment about my blog feature in romantic homes! you are so sweet!

hugs,

mariondee-designs said...

back again as I just remembered the thing I add to the water when washing my floors (and windows) is a splash of vinegar! Maryann

Rebecca said...

Diane,
What a beautiful find! You are probably too young to stay still and quilt although I made a quilt in my thirties. You have time.
