Little did we suspect that what was out in the FRONT garden would be in the running…
This is a scene I’d expect to see in Bali – or some other exotic destination….Easter Island, Maybe??
Or – thinking vaguely about that long ago Brady Bunch Episode where they are caught holding the bad luck tiki!
If you are looking for really weird ((but cool!)) yard art, you can find it in Verona, VA!
This one made me think of my friend Tonya Ricucci --- I somehow think she would LIKE a reclining alien in her garden
Maybe you could change his bow with the seasons?
Then again, EVERYONE I know is hankering to be the next owner of a Memory Quiz Machine!
If I could only reverse the process and have it FIX my failing memory – it might be worth the 25 cents, right?
But seriously --- we were looking for Quilts and Machines…of which we found a few, but not many.
Loved this display with all the red…there were some woven coverlets also folded on the racks.
Loved the “Pine Cone” quilt….I don’t often see these…and there are thousands and thousands of folded triangles here arranged in a circular pattern and covering each block.
Pink and blue….very sweet and very well worn and loved – someone put gobs of quilting into this shredded quilt!
Pretty dresdens, also blue and pink…1930’s maybe?
Held up by Lori for photo taking!
This one was interesting – just a top! But was this an orphan bin clean out? A combining of three separate projects into one to call it done? Only – it never GOT done!
1940s rail fences next to 1900s 9 patches.
!920’s and later plaids and stripes and shirtings postage stamp style – off set!
This one has a story, I wish I knew what it was!
Simple large 9 patches of plaids sashed with “That” green, layered with batting thick and warm – and tied.
Loved this Buckeye Beauty variation…more plaids!
Chambray and Solid Red…LOVE THIS! And the quilting was nice..do you see the price? $65.00
The backing was also a very sweet pink and blue plaid…
How about a pink and blue and white tree skirt made from a cutter quilt!?
Sweet shirtings as the path…
I would NOT have done this to a quilt unless it was in unsalvageable condition!
Cutter pieces from a hexagon quilt..and someone’s diamond patchwork left unfinished ---
It was a fun wander! I didn’t have a lot of time, and other than the lovely green/orange drunkards path I showed this morning --- nothing else came home with me. It was time to hit the road so I could get here!
Mary and I got back from our Sam’s club run a while ago – we picked up the goodies for tonight’s lecture….look at this cake!
Go Scrappy – or Go HOME! LOL!! Love it!
I’ve set up my sewing at Mary’s Dining Room Table….I’m going to sew for a while before taking my shower and getting ready to go to the lecture tonight – what a great day so far!
