I just slept until 10am.
I know that is only 7am West Coast Time, and that is right on normal for me, but this whole flight home fiasco kicked my butt! I NEVER sleep til 10am! All I can say is I must have needed it.
On my goodness. Time to kick it into gear over here!
I want to share some of the other antique quilts that we saw at sisters.
While each quilt is a work of art in itself, I really love seeing them displayed next to each other in groupings. They have three beds that you can feel free to take a quilt off the rack, and display it on the bed to see the quilt better, so while people are doing that, there is someone always folding and re-hanging and the displays of quilts on the racks are ever-changing – I wish I could have a slide show of just those quilts changing position!
The one above I took of what was BELOW the princess feather in yesterday’s post. I love the simple broken dishes with red and green sashing, and of course the hand quilting on the blazing star quilt was fantabulous.
How about this display!
Ocean Waves, Evening Star, Irish Chain, 9 patch with 9 patch cornerstones, hearts & gizzards and a really cool drunkards path with white alternate blocks…don’t the colors make your eyes dance?
I fell in love with this simple 49-patch block! The alternate block has ONE cornerstone in each corner, so it has more of a snowball appearance than a chain to me. Oceans of double pink! YUMMY! How would THIS quilt work as a leader ender project?
Baskets seemed to catch my eye wherever I sawe them! I love how the scraps play in this one!
The flag quilt was made from cigar silks! And that 9 patch below with more double pink….do you see the rounded corners? This would be another great leader/ender choice.
Which one catches YOUR eye first? The applique? Or the broken star above it?
I had an interesting conversation with a newer quilter who didn’t know that the “tan” leaves on the applique were once really dark green!
The colors in this tulip quilt rocked my socks. And look at that quilting!
Such patience in hand piecing these tiny triangles!
And that’s it for today! This girl has book orders to get OUT!
