For that quilt, I used this vintage transfer from my collection. (I have since seen re-issues of it and purchased a couple more sets. They are very cute!)
I found this transfer for grandbebe quilt #2.
Anyway, I finished them up, but DS was not anxious to start the next quilt, so I went on to other projects and left the quilts in the "sewing bag" that I was using at the time.
The thing is, I created a memory of me putting them somewhere in my sewing room. I thought I knew exactly what shelf that I would find them on. Of course, they were not there! Then I thought that perhaps in the holiday spare room conversion, I might have tucked them into a box or basket with other project materials. I went through just about every box and storage tote looking for them!
I did look in my sewing bag, but forgot that I had moved to a different one for our travels last summer.
Finally, I found the original bag and the blocks! I was not really in a "panic" because I knew they were in the house, somewhere, I just couldn't lay my hands on them!
Worst case, I would have had to re-do the blocks, but I am glad that I can send them off to DS tomorrow so they will be in her charge!
I haven't seen this set re-issued, so if I find more vintage ones, I will probably stock up with a couple more. So vintage-y and really fun to do.
It is the Story Book Crib Quilt transfer pattern. These are some of my favorite blocks and some of their stories!
Okay, maybe not, but that is what I think of when I look at him!
It was fun to spend some time with them today as I took the photos. Now I will pack them up and send them on their way! I hope the post office doesn't lose them!
