WIPS Oct. 2011
Well, if there is a finish (see the previous post), you know there is something in the works. Here's what's cookin':
1. The Miniature Bethlehem Star - I'm quilting it now. The fabrics are ca. 1840's - the oldest in my stash.
2. A four block cut work needle-turn applique with pieced borders - more borders to come. It features one of my favorite ca. 1870's fabrics - double or Lancaster blue on a solid orange ground.
3. A tumbler charm quilt out of ca. 1870's calicoes. This is just a little project that I work on when I am stumped or between projects. Sort of a little fill-in type thing.
As usual, if you click on the picture, it will enlarge. There is a quarter by the number 2 for scale.
Just a note here: when I spoke to the NWPA group, Jill asked me how I collaged my photos for the WIPS. Well, I just toss them on the scanner and import the scan to The Print Shop program and add the numbers, etc. Easy, peasy.
Till next time...
