One year ago I stumbled across some amazing embroidery patterns from AllSorts. I knew instantly what I wanted to do!

I decided to make quilts for my daughters using these as the center of the blocks!
I finally got around to it. I had my girls pick their favorite twelve, out of eighteen patterns and I embroidered the girls from different countries on white cotton over the winter.
Last month when my mom came to visit she brought me some stuff from her basement. Among some treasured vintage sheets was this:

I started to laugh. I had COMPLETELY forgotten that 33 years ago I had done a similar project!
Here's another one:
I can't believe that I basically made the same quilt for myself! Looks like my mom had my great idea years ago! I remember working on these blocks and I think I even painted some in our white camp trailer with the orange stripe down the side.

Any ideas for Rachel's quilt?
Anyone recognize the song in my title?


  1. I've heard that voice before! It seems we've talked like this before! LOL
    Ummm.......might have to pay you to make me a cute quilt just like that!!!! LOVE IT!!!

  2. That's great! I can't believe it's almost the same thing. So cute!

  3. So funny! Always fun to discover things you have completely and totally forgotten about!!

  4. Love, love, love the quilt. Amazing. By the way, when you type in Hurricane Bait on Google, your blog is the first thing to come up. Nicely done! ;-)

  5. Wow, both the quilt and the song bring back thoughts of some very fun times.

    The quilts you are making for your girls are really cute.

    Also isn't it nice that your mom kept all the 'junk' that some people want to burn. I am sure we will find other treasures as we continue to go through things.

    Have a good weekend.

    Love you.

  6. yes- saturday night's warrier!
    well the quilt looks super cute- that is really hilarious that you did that before- aren't you glad you put a date on it? (so that we know how old you are, not for your own remembrance, hehe)

  7. You AMAZE me, for real. Do you ever sit still and just lounge on he couch? Always busy.
