Yesterday I posted about the Wheel of Fortune quilt top. I was asked for a close up of the fabric so here it is
The blocks are about 19 inches
the seam allowances are so narrow! almost non-existent
The printed fabric is not one I have seen before so it is hard for me to take a stab at the date, and solid fabrics are not a big help in dating fabric either. Id love to hear what you think. I’m guessing 20′s but could be 30+ years off.
I had to get the top out of storage to get some close up pictures. It is not that hard for me to find a top in storage. I have 15 tops in each storage tub and the outside of the box has a picture of all the tops in the box.
I will have to count the boxes some time to see how many tops there are….more than 10 boxes.
I made some more progress on the Thousand pyramids top…8 rows done
It helps to lay it out on the floor. I can line it up with the floor boards and see if it is still straight…so far so good.
Yesterday I added a Kay Starr Song for the Wheel of Fortune top….today Jo Stafford for the Pyramids
