The first 4 are trip around the world quilts. It was the only quilt Aunt Zelma could make her last year or so. She had a method of using a white piece of paper with a bold black line on the base of her sewing machine. She was able to line up the fabric against the black line and sew quarter inch seams even with very poor eyesight. Shortly before she died she told me she had several bags with Trip around the world pieces cut and labeled. She didn't think people would know what they were since there was not a pattern or instructions included. She asked me to find as many as I could and finish them if I was interested. I found 3.
1. Red and White Trip HANNAH
2. Autumn Batik Trip---Julian
3. Red Batik Trip SARAH
This is the actual last quilt Aunt Zelma made. It was in a bag recently returned from the quilter. I just trimmed it and put on Binding.
4, Pink and Green Trip BEN
This was in a bag half put together. I just finished it.
6. Native American Sampler--Betsy
These blocks were in a bag with the yellow and purple border and sashing. The blocks were made by Aunt Zelma and some of her friends. They signed their blocks. Some quilt groups will have everyone make a block following a color scheme and then have a drawing to see who gets to take them home. I'm sure that is what happened here.
7. Loves me. Loves me not.
The rest of these quilts are mine. This is a small Wall or lap quilt. It is probably 55 x 70 or so.
8. Out of the Box--JOE
This one is 55 x 80. Still small but really cute.
9. Hydrangea sampler---ABBY
This is a little bigger lavender quilt.
