Sunday Updates

My Last post was about a group of vintage blocks that were made from the pattern “Nine-Patch Nosegay” issued in 1937 by Mountain Mist.  My good friend and Quilt collector Marge Wetmore has a completed quilt in that pattern (actually she gave it to her daughter) and she shared a picture.  It is great to see the completed quilt.

Thank you Marge!

Thank you Marge!

The maker of this quilt decided to use lavender fabric rather than the gray and it is beautiful.  The picture will come in handy when I tackle the project of finishing my blocks.

I have been working away at the Trapunto.  It is not at all a quilt task.   Here are a few pictures I took last night to show some completed and incomplete area side by side.

The light was perfect this morning to get a few pictures.  Here are some that show the batik back and the white front (click to enlarge)

Happy Quilting

    So nice Tim that you have a guide to see a traditional setting for the nosegay blocks… will be interested to see what you do. Planning my trapunto and I have a question… when you do skinny areas that are curved like the outline on the feathers do you just do small bits at a time or is there a way you finesse the upholstery needle around all those curves? I LOVE the end effect and can’t wait to try my hand at it 🙂 Thanks for sharing your work with us! Kathi

      I try to keep the pieces as long as possible, so I manipulate the quilt around the needle so that I follows the curves…the difficulty is in keeping the needle from poking through to the front when doing such narrow areas

    Holey moley….this quilt gets more fabulous very time you show it!
    Will it be ready for the Lancaster show in March of next year??? I’d love to see it (I saw the “TREE”). We go down every year for the show.

    I did a 2 foot square piece- yellow on one side and lavender on the other. The lavender shows through to the yellow side where it isn’t trapuntoed as grey, which I hated at first ,but like it better the more I look at it. Which is your top side and do you have the same “problem”? It’s beautiful and anyone who has done this knows the amount of time involved.

  4. AMAZING is all I can say.
