Vintage Quilts Friday

Before I went on my trip to Ohio, Linda, Kathy's sister, asked if I would be interested in taking a vintage quilt off her hands. Thank you Linda for thinking of me!
Here is the charming quilt I made room for. 

 Humble hanging diamond quilting on this charming 2 color quilt. The quilting lines up as good as mine! LOL
 Freehand fan quilting on 2 sides. 
 Double quilt lines on the other 2 sides. I LOVE everything about it!!
 The quilts below were brought to my lectures and we had fun seeing a wide variety of quilts and styles!!

 These were about 3/4" finished squares. 

Love the blue and chrome!

 Thsi crazy quilt looked to be made by several people. Lots of different block styles and stitches. I hope "Father" loved it!
Is this chicken as cute as ever??? 
Love the stitches too!!

Most 4th of July I have ran a local race, either by myself or with my kids if they are home. This year I opted to walk the 6 mile race. I came in first in my age category! The only time I ever came in first and they posted me with a different age category so I was not recognized as first place!! Figures! Keepin' me humble... 
But, while on the walk I met a woman and we chatted a bit.
 They were looking to add a team member to the Cascade Lakes walking team- so I said YES! It's about 100 miles for the walking team and will take 12 of us a total of about 30 hours.
I've been on a running team the last 2 years, but I'm always up for a new adventure. I like that it is a 40+ all woman's team. Sounds like they have a good time, but are a little competitive.
 (I think I'll fit in just fine!) 

I've been trying to get my walking speed up and boy it is hard! I think it is harder than running!! 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. 


  1. woah I didn't even recognize your blog. what a face lift!

    I enjoy seeing the vintage quilts that were brought to your lectures. In the Oak Leaf and Reel-type quilt, did it appear that the tan had once been green?

  8. ooh la la...that blue/red princess feather....drooling here..LOL

  9. Vintage quilts are so fun to see. Love the new look of your blog!!! I mean I always did, but it's a neat new look!

  10. Wow! Your new blog looks great! So streamlined and easy to read. Lucky you--what a wonderful Bowtie quilt. Congrats on a 1st place win! I always thought it was harder to walk than run, too. Have fun in the 100-miler :)

  11. Oh, for the love of old 4-patches, old 9-patches, old crazy quilts! And that wonderful big Prince's Feather! What beautiful old quilts!
