Show and Tell...and an idea !!!

          Hello, Lovely Blog Peoples:):) I decided to show you some of my quilts from time to time!! I have not shown them all yet. So, here are 2 of my quilts...... And I went to my guild meeting this week..and our guest speaker brought a really special quilt. I will tell you about that in a minute... First quilt up....
I am using this quilt as my computer cover. I really love it..the colors are just super fun!!
This quilt was my very first attempt at designing my own quilt!! I had no pattern.

So, back to the quilt idea!! Carol brought in a beautiful quilt made out of the old vintage hankies!!! I have NEVER falling in love with a quilt so fast!! Soooo, I am now on a mission....I NEED hankies!!!
I thought I would show you what I have already!!
.....my gears are just a turning!! I want to make this quilt sooo bad!!!
 Don't they just make you ....sigh.....? They sure do me!! Now, the hunt is on!!! I need at least 100 hankies!! 
I also, went to lunch with my friend Susanne....and we hit a couple of estate sales!! I found some cool stuff!!
 These are teeny tiny tart tins!! They will make awesome Christmas ornaments!!
Well, that is it for me today!! 
Many hugs!!
Sandie

I have my Mom's and Mother-in-Law's hankies. They are no longer with me but I have held on to the hankies to make a memory quilt. Just haven't found the pattern I want to use. Love you quilts!

Love the bright Tumbler quilt! And hankies... what fun this quilt will be. Even the hunt for hankies will be fun. Maybe try eBay for purchasing a lot of vintage ones. That might boost your collection more quickly.

Sandi: I'm trying to recall what blog was going to have a Tour of blogs with fewer followers to help build up their blogs. It was going to be in Oct. do you remember seeing anything about it? I think she was going to give some hints on the subject too.
