I was surprised this morning when my boarding passes printed out and I am flying through Washington, Dulles on my way to Albany this morning. I *DO* hit Newark on the way home on Sunday, so that’s why I had Newark on the brain.
And I’m happy to say that I’ll be home by 3pm on Sunday and still get to enjoy some Mother’s Day love with my family. Jason is coming up to spend some time with his Dad this weekend, and see about building me a bigger faster computer with more storage. LOTS OF STORAGE!
I have a few more goodies to share with you from Maine this morning. I just keep discovering more photos of more great antique beauties, and I never get tired of seeing them.
It’s seeing the wonderful hand quilted stitches and the texture that they give that has me really wanting to get back to my hand quilting.
There were too “similar” quilts, but one was quilted differently than the other….this one had very close hanging diamonds quilted in the border behind the tulips as well as cables in the sashings.
This too a lot of patience, and a lot of time!
Ms Sue herself!
The second quilt had feathers in the corners of the blocks…..but I don’t think I got a very good photo of those.
These were so NICELY done!
OH!!! Little Hexies!!
These rosettes are set with a double path of muslin hexies to space the flowers further apart.
Such sweet fabrics!
And look! How tiny!
((And just when did I get my mother’s hands?!))
THIS one was the show stopper for me!
Not very large in size….but wow!
Those tan areas likely used to be green….
Can you see how heavily quilted this is?
There are places where pieces are joined to pieces to make parts big enough….I just find this SO striking!
Again….these are NOT large blocks, which makes the quilting that much closer together!
We really did hit the vintage quilt jackpot that day in Brunswick Maine…..there are still more photos to come and I’ll post them as I’m able. I hope you enjoy the eye candy as much as I do.
I’ll be in Albany, NY by 10am!
I wonder what adventures await me there!
