More quilts from the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell MA "Prussian Blue" Exhibit
This is a pair of pillowcases probably from PA......maker had a big variety of scraps for her flying geese!
Sorry for the blurriness.....must have been too close....but you can see the Prussian blues! Have always loved the color but now have a new appreciation of it!
Nineteenth Century clothing could be very colorful!!!
Dress pattern prior to sewing machines becoming widely available after the Civil War....can you imagine doing all these seams by hand?
Another Ongoing Project! Postage stamp blocks.....making each block 12x12 (144 per block) and aiming for 49 blocks set 7x7 for a 84" x 84" quilt which is as large as I need for my bed. Can use this for Leaders and Enders if I run out of Railfence blocks and hst's currently being made.
Until next time..............................
