I've pulled a long...long lost project off the top. It was a reproduction of a friend's, Bill Volkering, quilt.
Pretty much all the piecing is done (except for the setting triangles which may be solids, may be string pieced or may be a random selection of neutrals...humm...)
I also did this in some reproduction fabrics without the applique...more on that in a future post as I don't have photos.
Vintage Wedding Ring from NC.Which gets me to why no photos...MS has decided to make itself known again. My MRI was a bit like Swiss cheese (don't even ask me what the Radiologist said to me...do they have any lectures on bedside manners?!)
Speaking of cheese...made an awesome quiche with zucchini and mushrooms! Brought it to a quilt-in last weekend. We made over 50 pillowcases for elementary children who are homeless...when I'm feeling bad for myself it helps to do something for others!
My husband has been helping me with my annual refolding of the quilt stacks. These are my antique quilts that I take out at least once a year to inspect, air out for a couple of hours, then refold.
This is one of my oldest quilts. It is a Carpenter's Wheel dated 1838.
The date is embroidered in the center.
And the makers name is stamped in one corner. I think the name is Frances J. Shriner (Shriver?)
I've often started to reproduce this quilt but never found the right fabric for the borders...There are several new lines coming out this year so perhaps...
