My friend, Patty the Quilt Lady, has made several veterans quilt tops for us over the years and she gifted us with two more this year! If you want to see them in their full glory you can see them on her blog here and here.
I also dyed 4 new quilt backs for veterans quilts and Patty's quilts will work perfectly with the medium blue at the bottom. Each one of these quilt backs serves 2 quilts. If I ever finish Lost My Marbles I'll be able to load and quilt these!
But that's not all! Patty also send me a big collection of keys! Now you may be wondering why someone would want a bunch of keys that no longer unlock anything. Well, just think for a few moments while I untape these.
Did you figure it out?
What we have here is the focus of my next sun printing session!
You know, I'm really big on decluttering and even have yard sale and thrift store piles being built right now. But I'll never get rid of my "trash". This is a lot more valuable to me than the plates that are going into the yard sale next month.
We're all like that, right?

Thank you, Patty, for the quilt tops for our veterans and for gifting Vicki with valuable 'trash' for printing fabric. . .

Yes, we are! Lucky you - I'd love a collection of keys! Have fun sunprinting.

Now I know why I have a jar full of old keys ... it is not just because we have moved house ten times and accumulated some keys from each one for things we couldn't identify.

As soon as I saw the keys, I knew they were for sun printing. And now I have a great idea! My dad kept old keys in a coffee can. So when it is warm weather - I can borrow that can of keys and do my own key sunprinting.

Nice quilt tops - for a very good cause. The keys are so intriguing and I can already imagine sun printing with them. And there are tons of uses for them after that too.

Thanks for the shout out! That was not all the keys I had collected before the old high school was demolished. I still have more! I did try and pick out the most interesting ones to send you. I really like the ones with the square heads.
