Seems like I haven't had much to write about lately (dry spell) , but then I started choosing photos and I guess I do have a little going on! Components below are for a quilt called "Morning Walk" using the "Rachel Remembered" line by Betsy Chutchian for Moda. I absolutely fell in love with the yellow/blue floral (and that dark blue too!) Hopefully, I will be able to sew over the holiday ...would love to get the top completed!
From a recently-acquired Triangle Quilt Top......circa 1890
Love this print! Another cut seen below.
Ugly Orange! But I like it!
This green appears very faded.....similar print to the brown above.
Love this print!
Has many double pinks!
One of the dating factors! Claret Red!
On the right below is a glimpse of an 1870's "cheater"!
Nice piece of old chintz!
At the family camps on a point on Woodbury Pond (10 minutes from here), a pair of magnificent Eagles built a nest.....appears to have only one eaglet, nearly fullgrown now. I told them I would stock our farm pond with trout if they would move to our place!
Fortunate to get this shot of both parents! Have to stand pretty far away......we are not supposed to get within 330 feet of an eagle's nest!
The Heart quilt is for Madilyn, the ever-smiling darling little Madilyn!
Who is now 9 months old!
And, I can't show you one little darling without also showing the other two! This is Penny, 10 months old, who visited last month from FL. (Her parents came too.)
And this is Baylor, 19 months old, visiting from AZ. We get to keep him for a few more weeks!
I had forgotten how quick a little boy of 19 months can be!!!
A new book, always new books! Latest one from an American Quilt Study Group........
the scrap box is full again! Did not think I would be able to cram all this into one box, but by folding more neatly, I was able to! Leave a comment and I will use Random Generator Husband to pick the winner in a week or two!
