One more quilt
It is late and my legs are too jumpy for me to sleep. Now I just have to wait for the meds to kick in so I thought I would use my wait-time to post the last of the vintage quilts from Beech Island.
This one has some fun materials in it...check out the pink-ish striped border fabric! The piecing is really well done but the quilting is very rough. Makes you wonder if perhaps they were done by two different people. Unfortunatley the owner doesn't have any information about the quilts. This one was found in her aunt's closet and was being claimed as a bed by the house cat!
I love this pattern but it isn't one I'm rushing to try and reproduce...I save my curved seams for the Drunkard Path. (Which I had been told was called Rocky Road to Dublin....)
I am almost finished costume duty for this year. Tomorrow I just have to make a pair of capri pants then box the costume up and get it in the mail so it will be in New Mexico for what seems like a week-long Halloween celebration!
