Good morning! It’s Cindy reporting in from Ohio.
I feel so lucky to have inherited a sewing basket from my husband’s grandmother. She was affectionately known as “Granny” to everyone.
Granny loved to paper piece and she made many beautiful hexagon quilts over the years. I decided to store my hexagon quilt supplies in her basket as a tribute to her and to the world of paper piecing.
Inside the basket there is a clear plastic tray that works great for sorting fabrics; before, during and after the hexagon making process.
The basket is deep enough to hold my entire stash of 30’s prints, finished blocks and well…anything associated with my paper piecing project!
This will be my “grab and go” quilt project basket. It will keep me company while watching TV, sitting on the front porch swing, traveling in the car and who knows where else? Lucky me, I get to continue Granny’s quilting legacy and preserve a piece of family history!

I think Granny would be just tickled to know you are using her basket. How fun that it all fits in there, just like it was meant to be!
Yes, lots of storage in this basket…it might even double as a picnic basket someday…a small quilt would fit!
Let the tradition continue!
Yes! Thank you, Chela!
That’s what it’s all about – keeping those family legacies alive!
