Whenever my guild has large meetings a few members will bring their family heirlooms or recent antique textile finds to share with the group. This month was no different. Here are a couple that I saw...
First was this interesting churn dash circa 1900...it is very dirty but the fabrics are wonderful to look at..of course the brown is shattering so cleaning this will be challenging. I really like the large pink and white printed check in the alternate blocks. At first glance it looks like a large gingham but it is a printed fabric. It has a plain muslin back and I believe the binding is front to back.
Next was a fun log-cabin circa 1940.
These strips are tiny! The center blocks are red or pink and are 1/2 inch square! I believe it was foundation pieced on muslin.
It has a wonderful yellow flowered back...the binding is back to front.
