I'm not a huge fan of 30's era quilts. I like them but they are not my "passion." Like all rules however there are exceptions and this nosegay quilt is one of them! The quilter made a quilt for each of her children...I belive 6-7. Anyway I got to meet two of them. They were surprised but happy that the quilt was in the exhibit.
I love how she pieced the corners...used such wild fabric combinations (marron and lime-green!) and let every stripe go any way it fell. Truely mavrick.
The humility block in the corner is a nice touch too!
I am off to New Mexico for a few days looking a property with my DH. He has it in his mind he would like to retire out west. My sister and kids live in New Mexico so we will give it a try. I'll report back next week!
