In No Particular Order

So much goes on during quilt week it is easy to want to get straight to the quilts! So that is what I'll do.
If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you know I love antique quilts, love the quirkiness and the humble way our ancestors made do.  So, since that is my favorite, I'll start there!
What's not to love about circular blocks? I wish I had a photo of the whole quilt.
There was a Saturday market going on during the show and I saw this lovely block there. Love the color and the pattern.
Loved the bow borders.  The next few have great borders as well!!

This is simple, but very effective. (narrow too!)

I'm not sure I've seen a pieced border like this on a log cabin quilt.
This gorgeous fabric was the backing of the log cabin. Isn't is beautiful?!

I can't say I've seen too many poison green and white quilts.


Great pattern and a vibrant old quilt.

Happy Tuesday!

  3. I have a friend who found a blanket box full of quilts that had been sealed away around 1890 when an addition was put onto the old log farmhouse. That red and green flower on the white with the simple striped border reminds me of 2 of the quilts she found.
