An Afternoon's Visit

While in Utah, we visited my mother's only sister, Susanne; pictured below.

She and Uncle Thale were happy to see us and we spent a good while with them.  Like any good aunt, she baked chocolate chip cookies and allowed Urban and I to eat as many as we wanted!!

Aunt Susanne and I pulled out the quilts her mother and grandmother had made and took pictures.

I took around 75 pictures in all of just four quilts, but since nearly every block was made from different fabrics, I HAD to!  I don't need to explain that to you!

Beginning tomorrow, I'll make one post per quilt so you can see, and I can properly document, the detail of each treasure.

The Quilts:

What treasures. My first quilt was a GFG that I hand pieced.
Looking forward to seeing your documentations.

I absolutely LOVE that GFG - I'm currently working on one that I take along when waiting for my hubby at PT, Dr's appts, etc. Just love the colors - mine has the same yellow in the center and is then done in all "flower" fabrics and joined with white. I'm using mylar templates, which are great!!! I'm not sure what size it will be but hoping for a queen size - wish me luck!! I'm looking forward to seeing your posts on the other quilts, too -
what treasures!!!
