Another one of the quilts from Fresh Family Traditions: 18 Heirloom Quilts for a New Generation is "Stars over Iowa" which I made using some of my favorite Amy Butler prints. All of my ancestors on my Mom's side came from Iowa, and I have fond memories of visiting there as a young girl. But this quilt is extra special to me for another reason.
My great-great grandmother, Emma Acelia Wakefield Fitzgarrald also made a stars quilt from some of her fabrics sometime in the 1930's. It has been so much fun to have this quilt in my home over the last couple of years!
Also today...I need to announce a couple of Schnibbles parade winners from the other day! Carrie will be sending some April Showers Layer Cakes to Lisa from Sinta's parade and to Terri from my parade.
Also, Sinta will be sending a little something (2 charm packs of Garden Party Tango) to Susan S and I will be sending a little something (mini charms that can be used for next month's project) to Hildy.
Please send me your mailing info ladies!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
