The “To-Do” list is quite long around here, and I’ve only got a couple of days to do it as I leave for New York on THURSDAY!
How about some Quilt-Cam time TONIGHT?! It’s been a long time, and I know tomorrow night I’m going to have to get to bed extra early for another 4:15am run to the airport…..and I need NEED some machine time!
I’ll likely be working on borders for those baby quilts. Be ready to come check the blog at 9pm eastern, click the arrow to start the live feed and we can do some catching up!
Now on to the lovely antiques we found while Antiquing in Brunswick…Sweet 1930s appliqued tulip...Lovely! But this next one really caught my eye:
Love how this green has faded practically to grey ---
LOVE the yellow in the sashings and the 9 patch cornerstones!
The quilt was not in the greatest of shape ---and the hand quilting on it was minimal—mostly in the ditch, which caused the cotton batting to lump up and migrate over time. Quilts that are more heavily quilted, with quilting that crosses seam lines tend to fare a bit better, but I just loved how graphic this is. There is NO STOPPING Turkey Red!
Album Block Crib Quilt!
The 1880-1890's browns in this crib quilt were extra yummy….plenty of masculine plaids and stripes mixed in with the brown dress prints. I saw this and instantly thought of lines of Jo Morton fabrics!
Love this one….with that fussy cut flower in the center of the block.
Who knows what the date on this feed sack is, but it is from Fort Wayne, Indiana. The blue gingham sashings and binding could be ANYWHERE up to 1940…..blue gingham is found in nearly every decade. Still….such a fun thing to see!
There are more quilts to share….perhaps tomorrow!
See you tonight for Quilt-Cam!
