I have been working away at some of the projects that I have already started and posted about several times already so I decided that I would take a few things out of the quilt closet to show.
This first quilt top is full of little surprises. Signatures and interesting blocks and fabrics.
At some point in its history someone decided that it needed to be “fixed” yikes! They sewed on a few patches very poorly
and added a binding…which stretched it all out of shape as they machine sewed it on pulling as they went
It will take some work to get it in shape to quilt, but I still like it. I am always drawn to blocks that have names on them….here are the signed blocks (click to enlarge)
I also took out a pile of fan blocks
I have 40 of these, and I really think they will be a great quilt one day
Teddy likes to help me decide what to do…
we think that we will lay them out like this
and make some pieced sashing to go between. The overall look would be something like this picture that I pieced together
It won’t be exactly like this but that is the basic idea. This is a some day in the future plan….but it is always fun to think ahead.
