How I've been spending my time . . .

I'm pleased with my quilt so far. James' mom gave me a little more info about the origin of the quilt pieces. They came from her great-grandmother - James' great-great grandmother. She lost her sight in the 1930's, so this was a project that she had started before then. I think some of the pieces were from clothing that had been cut up. There is a good chance that some of the fabric came from depression era food sacks. I'm excited to have a piece of history.

I've still got a lot of stars left - about 35 or 40, so this is going to be a good size quilt.
