I completely forgot that I was going to share more of this sweet vintage quilt upon my return home from Georgia--
While tackling a pile in the Living Room ((Some of which has to go back INTO the van for Wednesday’s upcoming trip to Perry, Dallas and Cartersville, GA)) I re-unearthed the quilt!
I really miss taking photos outside. But it’s just not warm enough at 7:30am to go out to the back deck, and since we changed that railing last summer….things don’t lay out as nicely on it either! So the rails of the longarm are going to have to do.
This is just a simple simple basic log cabin. But this is the kind of scrap quilt that makes my heart sing!
Limited palette due to limited scrap bag contents.
If you wanted to make a quilt, and all you had was one bag to pull scraps from --- those scraps being the left -overs of clothing construction for the family, some masculine, some feminine ---what kind of quilt would come out of that bag?
But of course, that red, the indigoes, the yellow and some of the shirtings as well as the double pink in the block at the top of this post could be as early as 1890 – 1900. Or earlier?
You may even recognize the pattern on the red and on the yellow as ones that have been re-printed within the past 10 years or so.
Lovely shirtings next to stripes, next to lighter toned plaids --- I love the simplicity of this quilt!
Each log cabin block starts with a blue/white half square triangle. I’ve always done my log cabins with plain squares in the center, so this might be something to do for fun! I love how they draw the eye in the quilt design.
The quilting is “basic” with the quilting mostly in the ditch, other than an X through the center triangle square of each block. Functional, warm ----it stole my heart!
Yes there will be Quilt-Cam at 2pm Eastern today! Bring a project and come spend some time.
HERE and vote for the nominees you feel fit each category best! There is some stiff competition, what a line up!
***Note*** I tried to link directly to the voting page, but it doesn’t seem to be up and running yet – could be that she is on California time and it is set to post in a little while. I will re-post the link when it is up and running. So far all I see are nominations though the voting is supposed to run through Feb 10th –Feb 28th.
Have a Quilty Sunday, everyone!
