I have a few more vintage top to share today. I plan to get to these soon, but as you know I change plans frequently ….
This lone star is really great! I love 2 color quilts.
As is often the case with these it has a few issues.
the center is rather mountainous.
and the setting triangles are on the bias and very puckered.
I think the easiest solution will be to take it apart into the 8 main pieces/star points and trim them to the correct size and replace the bias cut triangles. When I get to work on it I will post all about how I do the fix.
Next is a spool top.
A very simple design but I really like it. It is a bit less than well made
not really flat and not very precise in the piecing
and some of those vertical stripes would be much better if they were horizontal…more like thread on a spool.
but I really like it as it is.
I think I will just press this one well and quilt it as it is.
Teddy likes it the way it is
Remember this quilt?
I made it with a line of fabric from P&B Textiles called Interplay
P&B Textiles now has my pattern (as well as many others) available as a free download on their website here http://www.pbtex.com/free-patterns/
It is an easy one to make…and could easily be made larger with the addition of borders.
If you are going to be at the Houston Quilt Market visit P&B at booths 1356 & 1361
I have a Floral Design Class to teach Saturday Morning …pictures of that soon
