Making something new, out of a 90 year old piece of patchwork!


 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!

That quilt is a smile maker, for sure! It was such a fun idea Lori had for this SAL.
It was pie making day at my house, too. Pumpkin and Pecan--I made a pear crisp yesterday. I just realized all the flavors I made start with the letter "P". What is with that. Maybe I should have made a chocolate cream. :)

That is a beautiful piece and a good idea, I have a lot of unused blocks.
Happy Thanksgiving!

The block made an adorable little quilt. I made a pumpkin pie today as well, and my apartment seems divine. Happy Thanksgiving
