It's been a quiet and uneventful week for us - not hard to handle at all. So of course I "holed up" in the sewing room and stitched away. I love leaves and after paging through magazines and books found a truly scrappy, anything goes picture of a quilt. I dug in my shopping bag which has baggies of different blocks in different sizes, and found some 6" leaf blocks. So I made about 75 more and am ready to set them together. The picture is one of the "unusual" fabrics I found and put into blocks.
The rest of the pictures are of the two antique quilts a friend of mine bought while she traveled the New England States. The four patch is quite unusual, tied with green yarn on one side and the other side has pinky-yellow yarn. It is quite lumpy in some areas and I'm thinking it was two separate quilts sewn together at some point.
Court House Steps quilt I made several years ago, really don't remember when I made it. The strips are 1/2" finish size and it was pieced on a paper foundation. and is hand quilted. We've been using it as a wall hanging and now a table topper and it is quite faded - but still pretty.
