Well if it isn't Vintage THingy Thursday already. Gosh even in the summer the weeks go flying by. Featured again this week from me, is another of my Great Grandmother's quilts. I am still amazed at the work that she did. maybe one day my great grand children will admire mine too! This is a real gem of a quilt, all hand pieced and quilted, unfortunately the backing fabric is sterribley fadded, but the front is still beautiful. My sister is in possession of this one.
I love the scalloped edges and the randomness of the fabric. Her stitching is so tiny, I can only hope one day mine will be so good.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this quilt. I am off to my own mini quilt retreat today. The kids asked me what I wanted for my birthday (yesterday) I said "peace and quiet and a day where I didn't have to make anyboday anything, drive anybody anywhere, referee and I could sew (or blog) all day sun up to sun down." I wonder if it will work or not. I hear feet above me getting ready for summer camp and one has left for summer school already...fingers crossed it works. Ok off to the machine.
