Grateful.....





I am always blessed by my students. 

 They inspire me, they lift me up....
and often they gift me with things I very much treasure.  




One of my students presented me with a baggie
 full of vintage dresden plate wedges. 




I love the precious designs....
especially the garden pots and the Dutch windmills. 





I was happy to piece them together....




...and soon I had a sewing room full of what looked like kite tails. 




I had a fat quarter of fabric I had been saving for the perfect quilt. 

It too had that vintage look that I adore. 





I had enough to make five blocks. 

I appliqued them to a 20 inch background.  




Lots and lots of room for some inspired quilting.  



I bravely quilted some Feathered Wreaths.....



....and soon the quilt took on the appearance of something vintage and antique.

I love that I can take something that someone started long ago....
and I can complete it and enjoy it. 

What a gift I have in my students...and what a gift they bestow on me.
