I am back home in California and hope I have fixed the computer problem that wasn't allowing me to download pictures. I have lots to do this morning so won't write much but I really wanted to share a picture of this quilt that I purchased at the antique quilt booth, which both Lori and Bonnie have mentioned and shared photos.
It's a poison green and if you look carefully you can see how interesting some of the blocks are constructed. Also, the holes don't bother me too much, really. I decided I'd wash it...so I soaked it in a large sink TEN times to try to get all the dirt out. TEN TIMES and the water was still dirty. I finally gave up and figured it was clean enough. It is dated late 1800s. Bonnie figured that it was pieced with a treadle machine (the stitches are very close together). Hand quilting is very primitive. I love the green. If you're curious, I paid $60 for it.
I also wanted to share a picture of our picnic in the park during the show. We always plan to meet in the park around noon time to sit in the shade, have some lunch and talk about all the quilts. You can see we're sitting on my antique quilt (before it was washed, obviously). I'll bet the green is a lot duller!
That's DarLynn, Bonnie, Anne and Debbie. I think Lori got there after I took this picture.
I also bought two quilts for Claire (if she wants them, anyway) and I'll post pictures of her with them next week. If not, they'll stay with me!
I'm hoping to post Sow-A-Long blocks tomorrow, seeing as it's the third Wednesday in July.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
Love to you all,
