Crazy Memento Quilt Block #7

Ya'll know how much I just love Spring!  Well block #7 is all about Spring!  Easter actually:

The little bunny in the bottom right corner is a pin that my friend Lula gave me one year.  She sent me so many lovely gifts over the years.  I never had the opportunity to meet her in person.  She lived in Maryland and I'm in Illinois.  We met online years and years ago when I was designing cross stitch.  We quickly became friends.  She was so sweet and kind.

The little chicks, eggs and carrots were a package of buttons that mom bought for me.  I'm sure you've seen them at the craft stores.

This is a really bright cheery block isn't it?

Crazy Memento Quilt Block #6

The special item on this block is the spider pin:

My husband is always on the lookout at flea markets and antique shops for little bugs that I can use on my crazy quilt projects.  He bought me this one because of the purple rhinestones.  He knows I have a fondness for spiders too!

The trim on the right is vintage.  I found that last Summer at a flea market.

So that's the deal with this block.  A special gift from my husband.

Crazy Memento Quilt Block #5

Today I have Block #5 of my Crazy Memento Quilt:

The little watch at the bottom left was my grandmother's.  It was a pendant watch and I think my mom bought it for grandma.  I'll have to ask mom to be sure.

The butterfly is a pin that mom gave me years ago.  The pinback never worked right so I decided to use it on this quilt.

The lace flower applique was from my friend Lula.  She used to send me little things for my stitching all the time.  I had painted it.

Crazy Memento Quilt Block #4

Today I have block #4 of my Crazy Memento Quilt:

The little snowman was found in a box of things that belonged to Scott's grandmother.  She was so sweet!  And unfortunately, other than a few things that she made for me, I didn't have anything else from her that I could use on this quilt. 

After embellishing this block, I had to glue the snowman on using E6000 jewelry glue.

The little deer is a pin that I found at a flea market a few years back.  He's on a little spring so he moves around a little bit!  Too cute!  I think I only paid $1.00 for it.

The two trees at the top are from a beaded Christmas sweater that I found at a flea market for $5.00.  I bought it mostly for the beads but decided to keep a few of the trees to use.  I spent hours and hours taking the beads and sequins off of that sweater!

Here's a photo of Grandma and Grandpa Kellogg:

This photo was taken in 1934.  Grandma Kellogg was a tiny little lady.  And Scott's grandfather looks like a gangster in this photo, doesn't he?  Sign of the times!  LOL!!!
