A couple of quilt's for the applique fans from my friend's closet...
a beautiful Red and Green Applique (with wonderful quilting.) I think the corners shown in the photo on the top of this post are interesting - a 1/4 wreath.Also this very worn red and green album quilt. Most likely it had a border on it (the binding is new (er.) It was made in Illinois but the only signatures that survived are the three embroidered ones. The quilting is excellent and most likely the reason the quilt has survived. There are some very interesting blocks like these birds with the nest.
And I'm not sure what to call this block...it is interesting how the red is inserted in the center but appliqued on top on the corners.
Just when I thought the med issue was over my eyesight went today...not that I cannot see anything it is just jumpy and I am having problems with color...it is a typical MS thing but not any easier to deal with all the same. Fortunately I know my Roll Roll cotton boll fabrics well enough to be able to piece with them even if I can't really differentiate some of the colors. Of course I may find out later I was wrong but oh, well!
