    Seeing those flour bags, I have those that were turned into pillow cases.. I wish I could find ways to use them around my house as decor..

    My grandmother "boiled" her feed sacks, sheets, and towels in a large black cast iron pot over an open fire. She used a broomstick to get the cloth out of the pot. The cloth was so steaming hot you could see the steam. I still have that pot in my flower bed.

    This lady reminds me of Edith Bunker on… I don’t know what kind of happy juice. But she’s addictive to watch and makes me smile.

    I love it! I have been wanting to make a grandmother’s flower garden because the one my grandmother made for me dry rotted and I want a replacement. But after trying to make a few flowers by hand I gave up. I think maybe I can do the applique version! Thank you so much for the idea! now I need to find your book.

    My dad has a Hoosier cabinet just like the one behind Eleanor. It has swirled milk glass in the tops of the doors. It’s beautiful, as is this one.

    The grandmas’s flower garden looks like the one I watched my grandma hand piece,  pieces were no larger than a 50 cent piece  – the ladies at the church quilted it, then she put on the binding.  It was later raffled off for the benefit of the church.

    I am a little concerned about the thickness of the 3 pieces together.  I do love the idea of not cutting ad sewing all those little pieces.

    The first quilt my Grandmother taught me to make. I still have the one she made me from all my old clothes as I grew. It isn’t in great shape as the clothes were used, but I won’t part with it for anything. She gave it to me for my 18th birthday. I hand stitched each piece for mine as she talked to me about her youth and taught me much more than quilting and sewing.

    Wow, I would def like to have those iron on templates… where do u get those???? I love how she throws the scrap.. I always have a mess, I just let it fall all kver.. then I have a big mess afterwards

    OMG! I am just finishing a GFG that I started like a hundred years ago. I hand pieced and I am hand quilting around 3000 hexagons!!!! I still have 10 flowers and the borders to go. I wish I’ve known this info before…..

  22. Colleen Ross on November 23, 2021 at 12:43 pm

    I love the “egg money”quilt series. It’s wonderful! I’ve watched multiple times and keep learning each time I watch. I’m wondering the name of the chicken and rooster quilt shown in the entry of each video?? Chickens and roosters ( really all farm animals) are my thing lol. 😊 thank you so much. Much love ❤️ from New Mexico 🇲🇽.
