I love the look of gingham. I don’t know what it is that draws me to it so much but to me it just looks happy. Here is another new vintage top in gingham
When I look at it I feel like having a picnic lunch.
I think I will do blue for the binding…and perhaps red and blue quilting thread for the hand quilting. This one is all cotton so it should be relatively easy to quilt….and the only thing it will need is a good pressing and it is ready to go. It is machine pieced (not perfect but good enough for me!) and to me it looks like 1950′s. The stack of tops is getting pretty high! I need to organize and pack some more so I have room to work.
I am making good progress on the vintage strip quilt
about 1/4 to go on the right side.
The last week has been beautiful weather in Lansing! we have had 2″ of rain!! My grass is green again…..I took a few pictures of the back yard through the window upstairs looking down
A bit of rain sure makes a difference!
