I am working on a quilt that I have not blogged about before. It will be used as a fundraiser. It will be raffled off at an annual meeting (the 25th anniversary) on Mackinac Island in October. I cant show the entire quilt yet, because it is secret at this point so I am blocking out the name but here is a bit about it.
I am using an old top as the main part of the quilt.
It is a top that was made in stages over a number of years. The center with its indigos, shirtings, madders, and pinks is much older than the rest….I took out the center and saved that for another project ( I might just quilt it as is for a small quilt) and replaced it with a new yellow fabric with the organization/event logo embroidered on it.
I am in the process of hand quilting it now. It is a simple quilt so it is going pretty fast. Here are some pictures of the fabrics which are mostly 20’s and 30’s with a few older mixed in
