A few of the 6" potholder blocks that I am working on for the Antique Exhibit at the Maine Quilt Show in July. We are making small quilts inspired by antique quilts. The block on the left was just finished, the block in the middle is ready to quilt, and the one on the right is ready to bind. I try to keep blocks at various stages so I will always have something to work on! Time is getting short and I have a ways to go, BUT the hard blocks (except for one) are done and I have only easier ones left. Row 1 will be done soon so I can sew it together and make it feel like I really am making progress!!
My zigzag quilt (for want of a better name), similar to the Mystery Quilt shown in my last post about our visit to Old Sturbridge Village. The Mystery to me of how to put this together may have been solved! Kim O'Mallon sent me this link after my posting last month. If anyone tries it, let us know how it worked out!
Got this new book recently "Treasures from the Barn" by Linda Collins from Australia. She has patterned many quilts from her antique collection, and they are Wonderful! Highly recommend owning this book!
Love these three quilts! The brown fabric squares in the quilt below was reproduced by Moda around 1998 by Sharon Newman. I have it in a burgundy red ...do not remember if there were other colors.
And, of course, small pieces and many different fabrics in one quilt are another Favorite!!
New fabrics have finally started arriving! Di Ford's Giggleswick has been delayed a month. But I do have two new Judie Rothermel lines: "Old Sturbridge Village 25th Anniversary" and "Macie's Journal". Also bolts from "Provencale" by Kathy Hall from Andover, based on a very early scrap of French fabric that is so boldly colorful you'll find it hard to believe! Also have "Sourthern Exposure" by the incomparable Edyta Sitar! And, oh, can't forget "Ville Fleurie" by French General.....gorgeous reds and purples! Think we were told back in our childhoods that red and purple did not "go together" but I think you will see that they indeed do!!! LOL
I will get the new fabrics posted as quickly as I can on the shop Facebook page!!
