visiting my quilts: party like it's 1999...

I had a quick visit with mom this week. She asked we hang this quilt.
I made it in 1999 using scraps from mom's and from her mother's sewing.
The pattern was in an early Fons and Porter magazine.
Beth uses waste triangles to make a legend of the origin of each fabric.

That is a very pretty summertime quilt! I just love the accompanying descriptions of the fabrics, what a great idea!

The quilt is a classic and made so special with the personal fabrics. Love the key!

What a beautiful way to document the fabrics you used in the quilt. So pretty. So much better than writing a note that can easily get lost.
