I started sewing blocks for the Pat Sloan Grandma's Kitchen Challenge. This is a block of the week. A new block comes out every Wed. There will be 25 blocks in all. Block 9 just came out. I am a little behind and have gotten 6 blocks finished so far.
I am making this quilt in honor of my Mother who passed away 5 years ago. My Mother loved flowers, birds and quilting. I thought I would use florals in some of her favorite colors.
As I am sewing this, I also remember my maternal Grandmother and Great Grandmother. I spent many wonderful family gatherings at my Grandmother's house and my Great Grandmother lived next door. She had the glass chicken sitting on a nest candy dishes. I always got a treat from them. Maybe that's why I love those dishes today.
Thank you Pat for this inspirational quilt along. It will be a very special quilt for me.
