This is a block on a quilt that I saw today at an Antique Mall.
It is badly worn and almost irreparable.
Each piece was meticulously sewn by hand. I wonder where it was sewn and under what circumstances. Yet it's very typical of the era.
I think the colors and patterns are just delightful. I'm sure it was quite difficult to do.
As I walked through the mall, the local church service was being broadcast through out the entire place and it reminded me of my Mum I think she would have joined in with her alto harmony if she had been there. I admit, I almost did too. The Ministers deep south accent was hypnotic and so far from the reality of home.
The quilt below, was interesting. It was really lumpy, but I found a part where the stitching had come undone and the batting was an old chenille bedspread. It was incredibly heavy.
I love these pot holders… so I bought this one.
YES, I did buy two quilts. Both were around $40 each.
This other one is a real scrap quilt, but in good condition and the fabric is delightful. It's like having an encyclopedia of fabrics in your hand.
The woman behind the counter is a Textile Art Major and will look out for interesting things for me……!!!!!!
I came back to the hotel and and has swim…. and so did Alice Isabella.
