Good Morning from Manassas Virginia!
Can you believe this was the beautiful sunrise from my window this morning? BEAUTIFUL!
I’m going to spend some time this morning walking the Manassas Battlefield and get myself a bit of history before heading off in Shamu for the wilds of Bedford, PA – and I say WILDS because there are oodles of quilters coming up for my workshops this weekend – oh, we are going to have a great time!
But first things first!
I need to draw for the winners of these two issues of Quiltmaker’s Classics:
Ready to Give Away!
We had 1,029 entries and our first random number generator winner is:
Miss Kitty Longo!
Random number generator winner #2:
Congrats to both of you – please send me your snail mail addresses so I can get these mailed to you upon my return home after this weekend in Pennsylvania.
I took a lot of photos yesterday, too many for one big post, and I want to share things outright instead of just putting up a slide show, so I’m dividing this into a few days worth of goodies! I hope you’ll think it’s worth it to come back for more eye candy overload.
Iron Horse Antiques in Manassas!
I stopped here first – two floors of space to wander! Of course I was looking for ANYTHING sewing related. Fabrics, textiles, old linens, notions, machines and quilts were on my agenda.
I ran into this girl right off:
Hello little 128!
I already have one of these so I patted her, turned her wheel and kept looking!
Wool hooked chair pad. Sweet!
“No. No, Bonnie --- you already have one fabric related addiction, you don’t need to start a new stash by collecting wool too!” “But, I want to – I really want to!!” These are the voices in my head on any given day. I loved this ---perfect for this historical area I’m in!
I LOVE things with drawers ---this one was for manicure stuff!
Oh, now we’re talking!
Love the colors – sweet 1800’s basket quilt, but it was pretty shredded and did not come home.
On the wall!
I love the shades in this…and I’m thinking pastel Florals, something like liberty of London prints would be great ---I love how some of the pieced half square triangles have more color to them than others…this just appealed to me. But it didn’t come home either. Just a photo, which is really all I have room for these days!
4th of July 9 patch! FUN!
Can you see the pattern in this one..there is a pink X going through the whole thing. Oh, a design wall project, definitely ---but would be fun to make up!
Close up of the center.
Sweet Grandmother’s Flower Garden!
Another 9 patch – shredded and well loved!
Ocean Waves in big blocks!
I didn’t dare try to get the log cabin out from under all the stuff on this table….
But it was lovely!
There is a lot more to show, but it’s nearly 8 am here and I want to get out to the battlefield before it is too hot ---will put up more photos later!
Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
