Part of my birthday present...


to myself! (Mom- DO NOT scroll down if you don't want a preview of what I made you- it's on the next post.) Sarah and I found this quilt top at a local antique shop. It has been prewashed. That is unfortunate and I told the owners that most of us quilters prefer a stained, intact, quilt top to a clean frazzled one! It really is still in very good condition. Only 2 of the flowers are a bit sad. Some one with very little needle skill tried to mend it, but I think I might leave it as it is because I plan on quilting it with the machine, anyway. All the fabs are 1930- the real thing, not reproductions and I think it is charming. I am not looking forward to the binding....

Oh...charming indeed! And very clean...must have used OxyClean? I can only imagine what a crazy look it's hair back has though....

So what are you going to quilt? Your freehand fans would add to the charm, wouldn't they!

I bought a GFG quilt in Feb that's in really good condition and I love it. The framed blocks look wonderful.
