Wonderful workin' on it Wednesday!!!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I have been playing in the Tulip field...Tricia's Tulips!! Tricia is my friend from the Turning Twenty quilting company. She recently gifted me with some pretty springtime fabrics! So...tulips came to mind, and you all know I love strings. It just all fit together!
Closer view...It is so much fun to just play in the scraps!
This quilt was gifted to me, recently. It is polyester squares, but some very much older cotton pieces too. The border was red, but is completely missing on both bottom and top, just a few shreds left. Maybe this was made in the 50's? But the setting print, the light small print in some of the blocks is very much older, in my thinking...what do you think??
Anyway, it is a fun quilt of the times, and is as heavy as can be!! I think maybe a blanket is the batting...
