It is hot here in Georgia...
Wednesday 2:00 PM
°F | °C
Wind: 8 mph
like, fry egg on the sidewalk hot. And no, this is not a "dry" heat...humidity 35%...that means the lens of my camera fogs up almost immediately! And it doesn't look like we'll be getting a break anytime soon!
So I will be in my room quilting.
I would like to be washing these two new-to-me denim and chambry quilts that I got at the estate sale. I washed one basket quilt last weekend and it after 12 hours outside...it was still wet! It's that darn humidity! grrr. The denim quilts would never dry out there!
I did put them outside face down to get some sun and a breeze. Really helps get some of the old-quilt-smell out. Not sure how these were stored and they were a bit musty.
These quilts came from the same estate sale, have some of the same fabrics (sort of has a look of the Cherrywood fabrics), similar quilting style and stitches, and have pieced backs of similar fabric. Both have good workmanship. Very good chance they were made by the same person.
I bought the churndash on Saturday. Then on Monday I got a call from the folks running the estate sale. There were a few more quilts and they were going to send them off to a charity. I could make an offer on any of them if I was interested. Yes, it was 101 degrees out...but I went anyways. I had not seen the one-patch at the sale earlier (they had used it as a backdrop for some furniture.)
Since I had the churndash I had to bring home the one patch! Each is a nice quilt but together they really are striking. They are in need of a bath though...hoping for a break in the heat soon!
