As for the package in the mail..... I got this on Saturday and the kids were so excited to see what it was. My MIL's friend in Ohio had found some quilting books from her Mom and asked if I wanted them a while ago. I said - sure!. These are from the 1970's before rotary cutters. The templates are on the pages and there are some really neat patterns with curves included in the various books.
Some of the detail for the quilting - which they have a few pages of the different patterns and tell you to trace them onto paper and then sew without thread on the line. Then use chalk to mark your quilts.
They give you 1/4 of the block as an example and then the templates are marked in the picture.
A house on a hill - so cute! Love the title 'House on the Hill - Appliqué that fascinates Youngsters.'
I love the quilt on the right with the partial flower. Neat idea.
This was adorable - all squares or half square triangles to make this cute rocking horse. Hmmmm I wonder if there will be some babies from the nieces and nephews in the next bit that I could make this for? Maybe it might be good to have on hand, just in case =)
Clean up the house.... or sew the GI blocks together. Yup - I think I'm going to sew the blocks together.
