Am finally recovered from the frenzy of the April Shophop And I now have a laptop here in the shop that makes it convenient to write posts during the day, as well as keep track of several baby Eagle Nests!
This is one of the quilt pattern handouts from In the Beginning Fabrics for their fabulous new "Circa 1825" fabric line. It is downloadable here from the website. Border fabric available in two Documented colorways plus one more!
And Now here is an old quilt belonging to my friend, Judy Roche. And what a scrappy quilt it is! Could spend hours studying the fabrics! Always looking for ones that may have been reproduced!Fullsize shot.......don't remember the measurements but will try to find out!
You can see that this is a central medallion gone wild. Just start with the center block and do what the quilt tells you to do as you go along!! And don't worry too much about measurements! Think we dated this as 4th quarter 19th century but there are earlier fabrics used also.
Love that blue! Wish someone reproduce both blues seen below! If someone has, and I missed it, be sure to let us know!
And here we have my friend, Mary's, copy of Judy's scrap quilt. She did a Wonderful job using little bags of Judy's scraps that were sold at their chapter quilt show last fall. What a wonderful idea it was for the members to make bags of scraps to sell to each other (as well as quilt show attendees if they could get there quickly enough!) for $1.....really spread those scraps around!!
New book received on the subject of Turkey Red.......haven't done any more than go through looking and the photos and reading the captions......I have too many new books!
New fabrics arrive often! This is "Woodlands" by Jo Morton.
And this is "Charleston", also by Jo Morton. Next up in June and July are "Melodies" and "Haberdashery". And nice reproductions coming also from Marcus, Moda and Windham later!
That's it for now but I will be back next time with photos from a museum exhibit of charm quilts from New England Quilt Museum that my friend Wendy and I plan to visit Sunday. Charm quilts are just as much a Favorite of mine as are Scrap quilts!!
