New to me quilt top...
Things are still a bit off schedule but getting better...
I made it to my guild's daytime bee today. One of the new members gave me a 1930's quilt top she found years ago at a church yard sale. She doesn't collect vintage or antique but it was the end of the sale and she didn't want it getting tossed. I think it is a great little top. A bit fragile in places but a wonderful collection of fabrics...particularly like the wide assortment of solids!
Love the little block with the nautical theme...didn't I just see something like this in the current Hancock's catalog?!
A few weeks ago Bonnie Hunter posted directions for a block she drafted based on an antique quilt she saw at a mall. Amazing how my brain has been numbed from not piecing or sewing for a month...this block just was not going together for me! It worked in the end but I've never worked so hard! Decided I needed to sew for 30 minutes a day if only to get the sewing-brain-cells a bit of exercise!
