Here is one of the quilt tops I bought from Laurie. It is small and may have been a part of a larger top. I love the fabric and it has so much character.
Here's a close up of the terrific fabric. Other then dirty the hand piecing is pretty good and I plan on keeping this one together and hand quilting it.
This is a great print!
See the repair? There is several of them throughout the top and there are a few holes that I will repair in the same manner.
Here's a piece of vintage fabric I purchased.
I never pass up anything Danish. Nebo cigarette anyone?
Is this the best?! A few days after our Tree to Tree adventure I realized I had lost my necklace that I purchased from Pam. So I ordered a new one- I loved it and couldn't imagine NOT having my lovely necklace. I told her what mine had been and told her that I'm sure I'd love whatever she wanted to make me. This is what she did!!
And she added the charms that I had on my old one, but added my initial. If you are looking for a lovely and personal necklace for yourself or someone else please consider purchasing from Pam.
1stitchoff is where you can find them at Etsy.
More vintage tops to show you later!!
