gingham quilt top


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!

    Yup, the downloading from camera to laptop works correctly, but the titles show only as the camera ID numbers — no way to change that to quilt titles, I suppose.

    Gingham is good, you just never see anyone using it anymore! I guess I’ll have to buy some and piece something and yes, that picnic does come to mind!
    Good luck at the AQS show with your quilt!
