There's just nothing quite like an old quilt. When I'm out vintage shopping, and I come across a quilt, I always wonder...who made this? How old is it? And even, what was the maker thinking about while he/she sewed this quilt?
Here's a lovely, old, Four Patch quilt I rescued from the thrift shop this week for $2.00. It's completely hand sewn. It's tied with yarn, rather than quilted. Very nice. I have no idea how old it is. The fabrics were hard to place. I'm thinking late 70's, early 80's...maybe.
I got a little more work done on my Basket Cats quilt top this week. I used some of this Green Bamboo Batik to sew a narrow border to the top and bottom edges.
Then I headed outside to take another flying clothesline photo. Maybe I should start making kites?
Here's how my kitties are looking today. I'm going to add an additional brown border around all four edges to finish it up.
Here's a close-up of the Shoo-Fly Cat Quilt Block. This one reminds me of my own kitty, Click-Click-Kit-Kat-Sweetheart-Babygirl-Babydoll-Peekaboo-Babyface. We just call her Kit Kat for short.
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
