In a blue sort of way

I have been in a mood for fashion and for things to refashion but have been finding more fabric and sewing items.
This quilt top utilized blue checkboard squares, summer squares and kitty print panels. Since I was repurposing the fabric squares, I knew it would take more measuring to square them up.
Ty Aurora and a Florida souvenir plate joined my collections.
Thrift shopping had it all sewn up with finds of a $5 sewing basket filled with goodies and $2 bag of fabric squares.
Contents of the basket included thread, buttons, needles, thimbles, pin cushions, scissors and lace. I was one happy thrifter all afternoon. The volunteer told me it had processed through the shop on Tuesday and I found it that Saturday.

Pattern of the Day from 1971 picks up the blue and yellow in my checkboard quilt.

Because this was a scrappy project, I am linking up with Leanne at and I'm beeeing social with Lorna at


  1. That's quite a find, Tami, no wonder you were a happy bunny! I'm loving the Florida souvenir platter too. xxx

  2. What a bargain! And great that they found an appreciative home. Thank you for joining up with #scraptastictuesday!
