Remembering Grandma

Remembering Grandma one of the 10 quilts I started at the first of the year. What was I thinking I couldn't stop starting quilts. So here I am. I am going to stick with this one now till it's done. I have the 7 main blocks done and need to start on the pinwhell alternating blocks. (I left that typo isn't it funny)Do I want to do all the work for the pinwheels or just use squares. What color /fabric to use. I wish I had used that other green in the blocks but I didn't have it then. Wish I had made the centers more of the same colors. Does any of that make sense I don't like what I have.

Here's the book I got it out of. Kim Diehl Simple Traditions. Ok just kick myself and get out of this funk pick some fabric and sew. I love the quilt in the book. Hope my scrappy version looks as good.

I really like Kim Diehl's quilts and this one is going to be gorgeous.

I'm right there with you in needing to finish some old quilt projects before starting any new ones...I'm just so easily distracted! :)

When I saw your blocks, my heart jumped and I thought, "That's going to be gorgeous!" I have to go look for that book...it's on my shelves somewhere! Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

I think it looks great. Thanks to your posts, I learned about this book and will be picking it up at the library today!

Your quilt is already looking great! Scrappy is way more interesting too. Hang in there on finishing it.

Scrappy will be wonderful. Although you are worrying about the fabrics now, step back, take a picture, and see how well they play together!!

Good start on the quilt. I had forgotten about this pattern. I have the book and should get it out for inspiration.

Well, you could use the reds and golds that I see in the other squares...that would bring them out and look pretty nice, I think. The blocks you photographed are really pretty!!!
