The Mailman brought me all these Goodies today! The book about Toiles is new from the V&A in England.........wonderful study book with detailed closeups of the fabrics. The "Uncoverings" book is the collection of the research papers read a couple weeks ago at the American Quilt Study Group's annual seminar.....this year in MN. Next year it will be closer in NJ! A friend did a paper on "Potholder" quilts so I took the day off (between customers!) and read her paper and looked at all the photos in the Toile book! On the right are the diamond template and pattern collection #1 from Ann Holte in PA who is doing a reproduction of a quilt made about 1860. Each block is different and very scrappy! Read about the quilt in QuiltMania #78! Hope I can make a practice block tomorrow along with making Applesauce and cooking squash to freeze, work on a Civil War Legacies quilt kit sample, pin-baste two Jo Morton quilts, try to find shelf space to store the new fabrics that have been arriving and maybe even clean a little bit! Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge it so you can see the PA quilt pattern better! Clicking twice is even better!!
Pine Tree Ridge - My "Pine Tree Ridge" quilt top is done. I will be working today on piecing a backing. I used stash only to make this. An easy sew.
