Monday Making


This is the antique quilt that I worked on - gorgeous!  This is so big I had to borrow my Mom's banquet table to baste it out - set 3 x 4 blocks and I couldn't fit the top in. This has everything but the kitchen sink in it and I love it.  Chintz and broque', silk and polys, cotton and feedsacks, wovens of all sorts and corduroy. canves and duck cloth, searsucker and old sheets, and shirting.  It is all quilted - a simple cross hatch with an antique white thread top and bottom (backing is muslin).  I hope to have a photo of the quilt finished once the owner gets the binding on.


After wrestling the 'elephant' thru my machine, I need a little destressor.  My 1.5" barrel is stuffed as well as the mini barrel with the lites.  Time for a postage stamp quilt.


Ten by ten squares for blocks that can later be assembled into rows.  This will make a happy quilt.  Another cold and rainy day expected, so a good day to play.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. The quilt is beautiful. It must have been a challenge to quilt with such a mix of different fabrics.

  6. That antique quilt really is a stunner! Is it hand or machine pieced? Using some of those fabrics must have been really hard either way!

  7. A quilt made of 1.5"squares. Awesome. That would be a thick, warm quilt. Colorful and fun.
