"Oriental Geese"

78" x 80"

Saw this pattern in a magazine a couple of years back. Made out of oriental fabrics and had cut too many strips. Not wanting to waste fabric, the strips were perfect for the border. I wasn't sure how flying geese would look on an oriental design, turned out great and quilting pattern chosen was perfect.

Not My Grandmother's Flower Garden!

90" x 106"

A friend gave this top to me and I asked if it had been her gma's. The title was her answer--not my gma's either! In the spirit of our ancestors who were so talented at demonstrating thrift, I attempted to see value in the discarded top, appliquéd a border to the uneven, out of square top to correct the "corner" problems and salvaged an unwanted top. The floral bouquet of crocheted flowers are yard sale discards I've picked up for pennies over the years and a few newer ones given to me by my Mother in law. Not a bad save!
