A day or so at the cabin, where it is getting quite chilly. I took this simple 1930s 9 patch to see what I could do ...it was a bit of a mess. I decided to just cut both end s that were a wreck and rebind, turning the back fabric over (the original had backing bias bound) I lost about 8-9" overall in length, but I didn't care. Its my kind of quilt, scrappy, geometric, 99% prints, even the sashing. Lovely feedsack nile green floral print. I learn a lot as I sew and handle the cottons.
1900 (or there abouts) firm woven check in very subtle shades, dusky mauve and dirty lilac. A far better quality than the green backing and the charming 30s lilac tree print below.
just to make you jealous, here is October 1st, on Lake Huron.
I've done really well in the treasuries this week. An 80s fur jacket was featured in 'nice to meet you.....or maybe its not you. This is quite the cleverest treasury I've come across, you have to read the comments! It was curated by just one look........check out her batik bell bottoms (if they haven't all ready sold) This expat, now living in Florida also used my
Some ivy print cotton (actually I don't think it was this one) was used in black and green, a sophisticated list from moonandlion , I knew this was European as soon as I saw it. indeed M&L lives in Mallorca. She has some super linocuts in her shop that I am rather keen on.
a vintage sari of mine was used in just a few of my favorites....put together by uniquenique. This was her first treasury...don't you think she has done a cracking job? She makes unusual and original jewelry.
well, its the end of the week so we have to have an Hermes day, this is one of my favorites .from my collection.
