More Time Warp Stars......hope Barbara has another good idea like this for next year! Love the inspiration/motivation we get from her weekly posts!!
Upper left is my "dun" pretending to be a faded green but could not resist making the background with the lovely Froncie Quinn chintz wood block-type print! Upper right is from "Savery Quilt" 1844 PA signature quilt reproduction line. All other fabrics in the line were beautiful, bright colors and this one looked so faded and out of place! Turned out to be perfect for a faded print!
Lower left is Later Turkey Red with just a touch of pink with a Conversational background. Lower left is Turkey Red with black.
Isn't this little Pineapple ornament sent to me by Janet O just darling?!?!
Will be on my Christmas tree front and center!
And she has yet Another Talent! She makes soaps that look good enough to eat! LOL Before I opened the package I thought they were candy (the rectangular one looked like Penuche fudge to me......my favorite but I rarely make it.....you know why!) but upon opening, a most delicious spicy scent wafted upward! They are wonderful......almost too good to use, but I am....love the way they make my skin feel! Thanks, Janet!
Anew quilt acquisition at New England Quilt Museum, Lowell, MA.
Dated 1865Love Lemoyne Stars and all that whimsical applique interspersed among them!
Beautiful fabrics and good workmanship!
Broderie Perse applique is so gorgeous!
"Cloverdale House" by Di Ford for Andover......the whole line....... the Pillar prints and serpentine stripes are going fast!!! Beautiful colors.....the teal is my favorite. Love all the "Go-Withs" too!!
My first block, made in "potholder style", for my entry into our MaineQuilts16 "Small Quilts from Antique Inspiration". Need to make "only" 39 more....all different.....based on a c.1840 quilt made in Bristol, Maine.......am tackling a more difficult one next so I won't save all the hard ones for last! Haven't yet decided on which method for binding......either separate or back brought to front..........time enough for that decision later!
NOTE: Shop will be closed week of Sep 23 thru Sep 26 for a vacation adventure with one of my granddaughters!!
