Goldie...guarding the quilts...
Finally I feel as if I've made some real progress with my Ocean Wave quilt.
a photo from 2011!
There are four different blocks in this quilt and I have completed all I need for three of them. Phew!
It is unlikely I will have the top finished by Saturday. (my goal was to have it done by the end of the month.) I do believe I will have it finished very soon though...it has only been 5 or 6 years in the making so what is the rush, no?!
Watson on my inspiration quilt....I have three antique Ocean waves in my collection.
This first one is circa 1920. The apricot is a sateen fabric. The pieces are very small (hst's are just over an inch!) I bought it in Pennsylvania in the early 90's at an outdoor antique show. It is hand pieced and hand quilted.
The second one I picked up at the American Quilt Seminar in Charleston two years ago.
I love the red. It is circa 1880. There is a lot of earlier fabric in it so it is fun to study. (The hst's in this are 1-3/4 inches)
And finally this wonky circa 1910 with large half square triangles. This is the first OW I collected.
This is the one that started my Ocean Wave journey!
And while I was rummaging through quilt photos I found the inspiration block for my Richmond quilt in the previous post!
