the good old days

Still plowing through all those unfinished projects and piles of destination-less scraps, and every once in a while I am running across real treasures. These blocks are the remnants of the very first (and probably best) quilt I ever made. I remember being inspired enough by these 30's reproduction prints to actually take a stab at sewing (maybe should have left well enough alone and gone skiing that day after all...) I do have fond memories of sitting at the sewing machine with my mom and learning the ins and outs of cutting strips, constructing blocks, chain piecing and so forth. The large version of this quilt was a BIG undertaking, but this little guy was a fun walk down memory lane.
