This is charm quilt #2..........a Tumbler.....not sure why it is hung sideways but it sure contains many interesting fabrics!! Look for the block with the Date!
Every type of fabric imaginable from paisleys to checks to blues....and a little "Centennial Green" peeking on the left side and with the circles also. First time we saw this color show up in a 4th quarter 19th century quilt, we were astonished. After viewing charm quilts for several years in our state documentation project, we began to look for it and usually found it.......sometimes in more than one fabric.....and oftentimes in various width stripes.
Wish I could have photographed every fabric in this quilt! Wouldn't it be great if Pat published a book of her collection! And even better, created a reproduction line of fabric!!
Greek Key is an often-seen design, both above and below. Love the shaded blue leaves...........have seen a similar reproduction of it. And what about the wheat in the lower left!
Centennial fabrics.................and I love that shade of blue in the little floral on white.
Second sighting of a red/black check but this one appears to be smaller checks! Circles and/or dots and stripes were popular!
We call this center fabric "printed lace".Shaded blue ombre is an earlier fabric..........
Love this blue on brown! Both the print and the colors!
Will be back with more next time! Thanks so much for all the comments for the scrap box drawing! Forgot to set a date for the drawing.....so I will say that I will do it by the weekend!!
