Incredible Fabric- Quilt Top

At first glance this doesn't look too special. 

But a closer look reveals more!

This top is beautifully hand pieced. 


The brown geometric prints are stunning!

I'm a little baffled on the minty green. 1860's?

This looks fussy cut to me.

A real beauty! I'd love to know your thoughts on the year for the fabric and quilt. 

It is in my Etsy shop!

Pop - Up Shop Finale

 The past month has been a bit of a whirlwind! I plan on going back and sharing some photos from my mission trip to Uganda soon. But for now we ill fast forward to this past week. 

My extended family on my husbands side came to Central Oregon for us to sprinkle my brother in law's ashes at the special hunting grounds. It was dry and hot but it was good!

I had been getting the Pop up shop ready so we used the opportunity to pose in front of my Cousin's Walk quilt. (I put a high price for sale, but no takers during the pop-up) If you wonder why. it is much larger than I actually like to use. I'm still the owner so I'll enjoy it!

Here comes Laurie on Tuesday from Washington state. I told her she needed to bring LOTS because it would be for 5 days- she brought a lot! It was great!
We had an amazing amount of space. I wish I would have sold more quilt tops!  Finished quilts sold, so am contemplating quilting a few of the vintage  tops? What do you think? I will be putting some on my Etsy shop this week. 

Making sure we are getting noticed!

We had a bus of quilters from Washington state stop by! 

That was fun.

And 5 days was over quick! We arrived most mornings about 8AM and left about 7PM so we had full days. It was fun to do it with girlfriends!

I'm looking forward to getting back in the sewing room.

RePOST: Antique Quilts of the British Isles

This is a repost from 2018 while I am away from home. Enjoy these AMAZING one of a kind quilts!

This was a special exhibit at the Houston Quilt Festival.

Fabric to die for!! Well, not quite, but you know what I mean.

Unbelievable fussy cutting!!

These are early, early quilts! WOW!

Humble, beautiful, spectacular border! Embrace the humble!!!

This only adds to the charm of the overall quilt, in my humble opinion. LOVE it so much!

 Look at these vibrant prints!

 Such whimsical applique shapes. Check out that appliqued star fabric!

Better than the label is his description. Wowser!! 

I love that he is working with Moda to reproduce some of these fabrics check it out HERE. 
 One of the booths I strolled through during festival was selling this sample of Ballycastle chintz backgrounds. 
Of course, they are so much more elegant in real life!

I hope your week is going well! I hope my week in Uganda is going well!!
