|a little playing|
Then when they're all gone, I'll do a little of this!
I was inspired by the era depicted here on Tuesday. I picked up this finished quilt top at my friends yard sale last summer. She is an amazing woman who after raising 5 kids decided to go on a short term mission trip to Africa. On that trip she saw so many children living on the streets. She came home having 'established' an orphans home! This was not a plan, nor was it part of the mission she was on. She now resides there permanently and recently sent a young girl home to Oregon ~ her first adoption. Anyway, I digress...
So I paid $6.00 for the quilt top and after a bit of digging came up with this red vintage fabric for the backing for just $2.00! When finished I will have paid $8.00 for this pristine little quilt...not bad in my book!
I have these great vintage glass buttons... There are 9 patchwork squares.
No way ~ exactly 9 buttons?
Must be providence.

I'm thinking this would make a wonderful summer tablecloth for our backyard summer meals. We'll see how brave I am after the assembly.
I'll be sure and share the finished product. I wish I could invite you over for B.B.Q. Then again, maybe we should wait until the snow melts! : )
