Tumbler Patches!

Happy Mother's Day to my Mom who taught me how to sew so I could teach my daughter!
In between meals, laundry and painting we cut out a huge pile of scrap tumbler blocks Saturday! 
We had fun combining different color themes and even adding the right yardage for the backing. 
We had lots of fabric to go through, starting with a bin of fabric my Mom gave Marsel from her sister who passed away.  It is nice to  put the fabric to good use, just the way my Aunt had in mind when she was buying for her stash!   
We put the rows into piles all marked for future piecing so we can remember the right order at some future date! 
All 8 piles are bagged, marked and backed!  It will be easy to grab a baggie and piece one together in an hour!  Yippee!
The room is completed as far as painting;  we will organize it and make the curtains soon!

  3. Isn't it neat the way sewing is passed down from mother to daughter? It's sort of in the blood.
