|1930s Butterflies with authentic feedsack binding|
She is enamored with all things vintage. She began digging through my box of feedsacks years ago and has already claimed all of my vintage quilts and recreations of vintage quilts. Whenever we find something like the butterflies square above, she says: Mom - will you make a pillow for me? Well, I know her husband Dani can't even find the bed at night because of all the pillows on the bed, so I turned this block into a table topper. I added NO batting, just a muslin backing and cut extra wide binding from AUTHENTIC feedsacks. This was birthday present #1.

So, this was a happy meeting of young (Audrey) with old (me and the vintage items!). She loved her birthday presents. And, oh yes! I also made a chocolate cake from scratch and chocolate butter cream icing - from scratch (her wishes). And spaghetti and meatballs (her request). I guess you could say she's my favorite oldest daughter
