Sewing Bee and vintage blocks

A member of my Quilt Guild was clearing out some vintage quilt pieces so we met up at the sewing bee today.

We "traded" a bundle of batiks for a bundle of vintage!  Works for both of us...

This is a partial quilt top.  The pattern is called Golden Wedding Ring.  It is very difficult pattern and not seen often.

The pale yellow in the star above is corduroy!

And this hand-pieced quilt top is made from double knit polyester!  (I will find a good home for this one!)

There were some embroidery pieces too, like this summer spread with a basket and flowers.  Most likely from a kit.

And these unfinished blocks that still have the blue marking showing where to do the quilting.

Some fun pieces.

Looks like a fun trade!
What, you aren't keeping the polyester quilt?? : )

Lovely. The embroidered basket one would make a great curtain, or shower curtain topper. Corduroy?

agree with Janet, why aren't you keeping the poly quilt? but if you ARE giving it away, me me me me me me memememememememe. so that's where the golden wedding ring came from - i wondered why I hadn't seen it... it's fab.
