I've been digging through the vintage fabric and quilt top piles looking for candidates to bring to the American Quilt study Group Seminar this weekend in Lincoln. I want to avoid checking a bag so bringing a quilt may not be an option. A top however I can fit even into my carry-on bag!
The roundtable discussion I signed up for is on plaids. I have several quilts that would be great for this but tops..not so much. The top in the photo above was at the bottom of a large pile. I hadn't seen it in ages! The blocks are around 6 inches (give or take a 1/2 inch!)
Of course I could just add a couple of these Dove in the Window blocks with the printed plaids to add some variety....
I also went through some of the vintage fabrics I've gathered through the years just in case I needed to do some restoration on one of my quilts. Some of these have sat in the box for over 20 years!
With Dobby on guard duty I know I'll have that fabric when I need it!
So now you see why this packing has taken me so long!
