I recently read something that said, “Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.” What a great way to describe my latest Sunday Sampler finished project.
In a prior post, I showed a gift from Aunt Maybelle and my plan for it. This was my Christmas break undertaking. It was time to do some quilting that had been on the backburner for a bit due to life in general. Here’s a picture to refresh your memory.
I’m please to say the block is completed and ready to put on display. Before going further, I wanted to share a picture tutorial of one way to display a single quilt block should you ever find yourself in possession of one of these gems.
A slide show seems to be the best format for today’s share. So hope you enjoy seeing the process I chose to complete my latest piece of hand quilting.
And for the finale’, I present The Dresden Plate. The start of my own “Beloved” unique wall ‘plate’ collection.
Perfectly matched yellows
Destined for my home.
Thank you so much Aunt Maybelle! I am extremely lucky to have such a great encourager of my hobby! Love you bunches!
Way back when I first began my childcare career, one of the first things I learned to make for the children were homemade sheets. The ‘choosing of the sheet’ is like picking out your favorite toy when it comes to naptime. It has became a favorite weekly tradition and it has helped those who aren’t really too fond of lying down be more favorable towards the notion. I’m not immune to pulling all the stops. I’d rather win than be weary.
The timing of this A to Z Challenge worked out well as I have some sheets that are overly used and need replaced. Showing you a pictorial of how I make mine. The instructions are usable for any cot or mattress. You’ll just need to measure them first. Depth, Width and Length. My tutorial is basic and is just a guideline. Hope you’ll be inspired.

Blankets slip and slide and can bunch up in children’s faces.
Couldn’t resist sharing a little Everly Brothers this A to Z Wednesday!
