when grandma passed, the linens got distributed amongst her daughters and granddaughters. i had more tablecloths and napkins than i knew what to do with! for the last 4 1/2 years they have been tucked away here and there around the house. occasionally i would pull something out-mostly just to smell grandma's fabric softener, but also to look at it and walk down memory lane for a bit. i miss her.
i didn't want them on a dark shelf anymore, they needed to be displayed...but in my own way. it hurt a little to cut them up...but it the end, i will have something that emily will be able to treasure and share with her daughter(s).
when i saw moda's dream on line, i knew it would be the perfect blend of vintage and lady like.
i purchased one dream on charm pack, one dream on jelly roll, and one bella solid jelly roll in snow.
next, i put borders around the charm squares using the snow jelly roll.
last night, i put the rows together. now i am pondering my next move. i haven't decided if i'm going to add anything in between the rows, or just sew them together and add a border. i'm going to play around tonight and see what i come up with.
i'm loving how its coming out though. i think nana and grandma would be proud!
