Following the calico patchwork theme from the last post, here's an outstanding quilt Grammie just finished. The top is vintage, found by Grammie in Indiana a couple years go (right, mom?) She took the top, added a batting and a backing and then machine quilted a wonderful design on it. I love it so much— the borders and sashing are so randomly wonderful. Were are both kind of freaking out about how cattywampus it is.
Like the fabric in the last post this uses a cheater cloth—the block patterns are not pieced, but printed. Although we both think the border colors are very 1930s, we have decided that the top is probably from the 1970s-the calico seems to be leaning that way. As I write this, I am remembering that long ago in blog time I posted about quilt related items every Monday. So, here's a very long overdue Quilt Monday.
I'm not sure what I'm going to start for a new quilt project, but I sure am having fun over at All People Quilt looking at all the patterns, especially this one here (which isn't actually from All People Quilt, but from Better Homes and Gardens, which owns All People Quilt, confusing, but you know what I mean. I never know where I end up after all the clicking.)
Unrelated, I read this really interesting article about Facebook yesterday. I signed up on Facebook, but we just never hit it off.
