My sister and I made a memory quilt for our parents 50th wedding anniversary. There were 12 blocks. The four blocks down the middle of quilt were a combination of the things that my folks enjoyed during their 50 years together. The four blocks on the left side of the quilt were things that my Dad brought to the marriage and on the right were four blocks with the things that my Mom brought to the marriage. Each block was done in applique and was very personal. It is a teasured quilt in our family and my parents enjoyed it through their 62 anniversary and it now lives with my nephew and his wife. It was one of the best gifts we could have given them and it was a joy to make.
I have seen Louise Cutting at Nancy's Notions Sewing Weekend this year and I would love to have her DVD's to aid me in my garment sewing. She is a delightful lady and has wonderful techniques for making garments look professional. The DVD's would be a great addition to my sewing library.
Thanks for allowing me to be in the drawing.
I have a cutwork linen table cloth that my Mom made when she was 16 years old, for her hope chest. That was in 1930. I would like to make a garment out of it but do not what to deal with the ironing every time I wear it. Anyone have any others ideas on how to repurpose it. I have no one to leave it to in my family.
I have enjoyed every issue of Threads that I own. You have even inspired my email address. I would be delighted to own all previous issues on DVD. I may even put the DVD in my will for when I am gone and can no longer use them.
