Good morning, all!! This year, Lori, of Humble quilts, set out a challenge to us. Use an old block, and make something out of it! Lori provided some very old antique blocks to friends at the International Quilt Show, in Houston, I believe. I had an old block I decided to use, to join in.
My block was in a scrap bag, and I reworked it into this quilt. I have been enjoying working on this throughout the year. These little string pieces are from the 1930's...90 years ago. I hand quilted through each piece, and hand quilting the border. The rick rack is reminiscent of my mom!! While Lori's quilts are made from even older blocks, I am very drawn to this piece...I think some feedsack scraps are in here. It is just fun to create something new, out of something old!
Please see Lori's blog here, and admire everyone's creativity!
Hope each of you is having a wonderful day! Today was pie baking day at my house...so the house smells so good! Apple and pumpkin pies...yummy!
