Hope you all had a great New Year's celebration! We had a quiet night, went out to eat, and then to our local theme park and walked around and looked at all the lights and decorations. Fun night!!
I have several goals for the new year; I hesitate to call them resolutions. I have listed 6 quilts to really concentrate on completing this year. My own list, for my own head to get around, in a place I look every day (the bathroom mirror). Maybe this will help spur on new efforts, right?
The above old quilt is one that was destined for the trash, but I rescued it! It is an apple core (or ax head) quilt, and probably has lots of other names. The fabrics are from the '30 and '40's in my best guess-tamation. The black/darker pieces are shreading. The quilt maker was surely a very talented lady, all her points meet so well!! and such pretty scraps. Many of the pieces are pieced together, due to fabric shortage and using every scrap. Just lovely!! I repaired the top and just slightly quilted it to hold it together and give it stability, and I love her work. So, Salute to you, unknown quilter of old, we honor your work!! Wouldn't it be fun if the original quilter would read this and contact me??
The other pictures are those of my Bonnie's Mysterious quilt coming together. I have now finished part 3 and part 4, and am working on the red and white pile (part 5). So this will be fun to get it all put together!! I wonder how many of these quilts will come to fruition...hmmmmmmmmmmmm. It would be fun to see them all!! Isn't it a good thing I clip my threads as I go? HAHA!! I just can't be perfect, look at all those threads hanging out!!
Have a wonderful day!! Day off today for me and I got all the Christmas decorations down and put away, so yahoo for that!!
Gratitudes: Health, Family, quilt fabric and Macaroni Grill lunch out!!
