Something Old and New

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

Happy Quilting

      Thanks!….I find that with the colors of this one and the simplicity of the quilting, I can work on this one without getting dizzy the was I do when I work on the whole cloth quilt….I think I need a few more days before I can get back to it
