This was another of the lost and found tops…..and this one is the oldest ….I made this top when I first started buttonhole appliqué (10  plus years ago).. ..all the hearts have been appliquéd…the background is just homespun which I had tea dyed…..(the fabric is a little stiff LOL…)…..but I am, going to finish it off………

Happy Tuesday

Take care Peg….:>)…

Some days there won't be a song in your heart.  Sing anyway.

Good on you, Peg! 10 years old is impressive. I'm just amazed that so many have been put away and forgotten!! I bet you've saved yourself a fortune by quilting them yourself though!

Peg, it really is amazing what we can find from our past and discover whether our tastes have changed or not. It's a dear wee flimsy, good on you for going to finish it. Now if yoyu don't want to use fabric softner to get that homespun a little kinder throw in a couple of cups of white vinigar in the rinsing water and dry on the line.
Just a thought.
hugs, Miche'le

Hi Peg! What a beautiful quilt top. You are really going to town getting things finished up. Me...I'm trying to find a mug rug pattern, LOL. I've been seeing them everywhere and just loving them. I will be getting in touch with you soon (I hope, I've been a bit under the weather for a while) about our swap. Hugs...

That's a nice top, worth finishing. Does no good in a box somewhere hidden... go for it... I also have a few stored away but I'm planning to finish them up this year and give away as gifts.
Soon I'll finish the binding on 2 and will post a picture on my blog.

Hi Peg - really cute design - and I'm so glad you have (or should I say had) something in the cupboard from 10 years ago - I don't feel so bad now ! I just went through a couple of boxes at the weekend and found even more UFOs to add to the list !
