The weather is finally starting to feel like autumn here. I'm getting some cleaning done in advance of the holidays...the animals don't like change and putting my carpets out on the deck to air out is just wrong in Dobby's eyes!
I made a lot of progress this week on my 1904 quilt...above is one of the blocks. Only two more to applique! I just may have this top together before Halloween!
A friend of mine gave me a bag of foundation pieced string blocks from about 1910. Funny the newspaper advertisements are as interesting as the blocks! The papers are all from Atlanta but I have not been able to find a date so am basing my date on the clothing. Don't you love those hats!
