A new project
I sort of keep a list going of quilts I want to make. It is my policy to only have one quilt to be quilted at a time. Miniatures are hard to quilt and I don't want a stack of them waiting for me to do. So, I try to have only one that is in the process of being quilted and only one that is being pieced at a time. However, sometimes I just go off on a tangent and do something out of the blue. The other day I was looking through The Art of the Needle 100 Masterpiece Quilts from the Shelburne Museum and saw a wonderful little crib quilt. I had to stop everything and make one. Since it is a miniature version of a crib quilt, it is going to be very small. The background fabric shown above is from the 1840's, however I believe the other two fabrics are even older. The blocks are 1.75" square. It is a bit odd to have a sawtooth star and a Le Moyne star block the same size, but that is the way the original quilt maker did it, so that is what I am doing.
Till next time, keep cool.........
