Pin It Wednesday #46

Happy Pins!  These are new pins from my "modern, quilts" board.  I found most of them this afternoon while resting from my nursing duties.  My husband had neck surgery yesterday.  We just got home today, so there were visits from concerned loved ones.  I'm really late getting this post out... please forgive me.

Did anyone else notice that I'm pinning mostly scrap quilts?  Well, I'm not sure that's the correct term, but they remind me of my grandmother's big scrap quilts.  Her early quilts were made of big pieces of fabric sewn in all manner of ways with no rhyme or reason to the pattern.  They were also very heavy!  I remember sleeping under them as a child and teen.  After Rich and I got married, we used lighter blankets on our beds.  I had a difficult time adjusting to the blankets because I wanted the weight of the quilts I grew up under.

Good night, all.  It's definitely time to get some sleep.  Last night's rest on the very hard sofa bed in the hospital was not good.  Of course, the nurses came in every couple of hours to do their jobs. Plus I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to help Rich and didn't get to go back to sleep.  I'm wiped out!

Happy whatever,
