I enjoy collecting antique quilts and making reproductions of them both big and small. I've made a few baskets and I'd like to make more. I dabble in knitting and would love to learn rug hooking, but it's hard to find time to do it all. I work in higher education and I love my job. However, I do spend a lot of time dreaming about quilts.
Today's post is just a quickie to share my new little treasure. I couldn't resist buying this little 20"x21" cutie. It appears to be hand pieced and is machine quilted with no batting. I don't think it was cut down because the binding is the same fabric as used in the top. I think it could use a bath so if anyone has expert advice on bathing old fibers please leave me a comment. Below is a photo of the great shirting stripe on the back. Such soft and lovely old colors. I have a special weakness for LeMoyne stars because of a recent event I attended. I'll be ready to post on that one this weekend. I hope spring is springing where you are!
