A few days ago I wrote about “quilting out” the puckers in my house quilt. Today I got a new quilt top in the mail. A vintage endless chain/true lover’s knot/lover’s knot/rose dream (take your pick). As always when a new top arrives I take a few pictures. Here it is
I love the fabric, I love the vintage look, I hate that it is so poorly made!
The seller said it is 72″ x 90″ I tried to measure it and it looks like it is about 68″ X 86″ but it is so totally not flat or square that there is no way to measure it accurately.

and some of the bumps in the center
This is going to need a total re-do. I will have to separate all the blocks press them and then put it back together in order to make it flat enough to quilt. This one is too bad to “quilt out”. But I still think it is going to make a great quilt. It is all hand pieced and that makes it easier to rip out the seams.

There are 42 blocks and I have almost finished 8 lots more work to do!

The lambs ear is from my garden.
I love peacock feathers!
The weather is beautiful today! I should get some yard work done…..or maybe I should quilt?
