Many, many years ago in a little far away country lived a girl who oftenly went to movie with her daddy to watch movies about wild, wild west. In these movies she saw wonderful bed blankets made from many colorful small pieces of fabrics. And of course, she wanted to have one, but in her far, far away country no one knows how to make it. Then, some decades later clever men invented internet and our little girl (being granny in meantime) finally learned how to make a quilt. From many scraps , in all the wonderful colours in the world.

Yes, winter came in all his beauty with enough snow to enjoy in it and without major problems yet.
Could you believe that these pics were taken just a week ago? So far we had very strange winter , but now everything is just it has to be.
They are all made with same block - Under the mistletoe, look what a different layout could do. Fabrics are pretty much the same : reds, greens and neutrals with gold.

Meet Desire, my precious 221 K, born in 1938. After 5 years searching and hoping , I got it! It is alomost impossibe to find Featherweight in this part of the world, but last month I found even two of them on our kind of Craig list.

She was sleeping over 30 years in someone's attic and she purrs purfictly, purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
