A blast from the past....well, sort of

 First of all, I am sorry but for some reason the program I normally use on this computer will not let me reduce the size of the pic  to the smaller size I normally use.  I hope they do not slow your computer down too much if you click to view.

I was going through some stuff last week and came across these 'quilt blocks'...or whatever you want to call them.  I did them when I was in high school.  These were all made with actual scraps.  I don't remember where they all came from.  Specially the solid colored fabrics.  I have a vague recollection of the purple flowered on the left in the top photo.

  I think the fabric with the pink fabric was given to mom.    I would love to have more of it now.  IN real life it is gorgeous.

The orange fabric on top was from fabric given my mom...I even know who by but too convoluted to explain.  And see that fabric paired with the purple...on extreme right.  The tan&blue fabric.  I had a dress made of that in 5th or 6th grade.    I would love to have some of that green fabric that is paired with the blue, too.


Copper was pouting here...because Delta had managed to snag the seat next to my daughter!  LOL  He is a character.  I don't know how long he stayed this way.
IF I counted right, I have almost enough blocks for my current quilt project.  I have the last four blocks about half done.  I am looking forward to have them done.  Yesterday I managed to get all my batik fabrics folded and back in containers.  For those of you who don't know, batik fabrics are dyed, not printed.  I cannot tell which is front and which is back.

In case I don't post before next week, I hope everyone has a great Mother's Day.  I will leave you with a short feel-good video:
