My First Post

Hello Blogland!

I've finally joined the masses and am very excited to now have my own blog!  I have absolutely no projects on the table at the moment, but hope to change that soon.  I've just finished some curtains for my daughter's dorm room at university, but didn't take a picture since I wasn't expecting to already be starting this blog.

One project I have been daydreaming about is to de-construct an old quilt my grandmother made in the 1960s.  It's quite worn with only a few good patchwork squares that I would love to salvage and perhaps make into something else.  I'm not too sure how to go about this, but I guess if I cut (gulp!) a large enough margin around the good squares, I could use those squares in another project.  I thought maybe a cushion (too boring?), or possibly frame, say, three squares in individual frames to put up in a row in my (eventual) sewing room.  (The photo up above is the true colour of the quilt ... the photo below is yellowed by late evening sun.) 

Anyone have any suggestions for threadbare quilt squares of purely sentimental value?
