When I was in high school, my home economics class made shirtwaist dresses that were so popular in the 60's. Several of my friends from the sewing class contributed scraps from their dresses for this quilt that my mother was making me. Today I love looking at the quilt and remembering each classmate and their dresses. I didn't realize at the time what sentimental value this piece would have!
Get well wishes to my beautiful friend who had triple bypass surgery last week. Several of the fabric squares are from her dresses. It's been a little over a month ago since we shared lunch at the Blue Willow Tea Room. I can't wait to see her again and give her a very gentle hug!
