Twenty Years Ago

I did all the prep for this quilt by Linda Brannock.  And I appliqued four centers.  And then it got put aside until today.  You can see that I am not taking my color cues from Linda.  I've got vibrant greens, yellows, oranges, and browns from light to very dark.  Hers is called Homespun Prairie.  Mine is Prairie Sunflowers.


A small sampling of the blocks; these are the eight I have the centers done.


Each time I start a new project, I start an index card, noting the name, design source (me or someone else), dates worked on, etc.  Here's the one for this quilt in progress.  (Bet you wondered how I knew this was 20 years old!)


I also noted the four centers I appliqued today on the back of the card.  When the quilt is finished (hopefully before another 20 years pass!), I will add the end date and the finished size.

It was quite a treat to see fabrics from 20 years ago; 25 greens, 25 oranges/yellows, and 25 browns.  75 different fabrics so far!  I now have this out where I can see it more frequently, so perhaps I will be more apt to work on it.  I also have the setting and backing fabrics in the bag with the book, pattern pieces, etc.  Luckily this is not one of the projects I started long ago and now no longer like!

Happy October, everyone!

Blissfully,
Sharon
