kentucky quilt for george

George's mother passed away -i think it was feb anyway he sent a box of fabric she owned up hoping we would make him a quilt and one for his sister. This was almost done when i came to chicago so i hope to finish it when i get home. Have to finish so packing for the move can begin.

there were pillow panels in the box so added that as a center and did simple peicing around the block. Cut up one more pillow panel for the bird in the corner . The checked border was on the pillow fabric so cut it out and used it as one of the borders. All of the fabrics except a small amount are from his mom's fabric.

Hoping to make a scrappy star or basket quilt for his sister-but that will take a bit longer. It was nice to get away from all the hand work and use my machine again.
