Still working on my BOMs too! Here's the latest on from the FQS. Think this one was the most time consuming one I've done, but worth the effort. Love how this quilt is coming together.
Head over to the Pink Pincushion and see who else was in Rehab. It is great to have just a little extra motivation to work on all these BOMs. Thanks, Sinta! You're the best!
I've also been working on a lot of nonquilting projects. I have just as many of these on my to-do list as my quilting projects. Finished one of these this weekend. My grandmother's rocker...Here's the before.........
And the after
I have always loved this chair from the first time I rocked in it as a little girl. If I remember correctly, my grandfather gave this to her, but I don't know the occasion. I'm hoping my uncle will remember. I got my love of quilting from her and her mother. I have lots of pictures of my grandmother, but none of her at the quilting frame. I don't think anyone took pictures of people quilting in those days. I treasure all my quilts I have that she made. Back to the chair! It was in good shape; just needed a little TLC. After removing the old fabric, I stripped it and then refinished it. I wanted to find a fabric close to the original. I actually found this at Hobby Lobby. They have a great selection of decorator fabrics. I was so tempted to go with a more modern design...so many pretty fabrics out there, but I really wanted to stay true to the era. Several years ago, I saw a similar one in an antique mall and it was called a sewing rocker. That makes it even more special to me! Now on to the next project! After I make a pillow for my rocker.
