Many of you who have been visiting my blog lately have commented that you wished to see some of my quilts. So I will add some pics of my quilts to each of my posts for the rest of the challenge. I bought this quilt top off of Ebay for $30. It wasn’t in very good shape and most of the fabric was faded. I did some extensive custom quilting on it. Afterwards, the finished quilt appraised for $3000.
This is a close up of one of the white blocks. I quilted it like a sampler quilt with some variation in every block.
The appraiser said that the top was most likely made in the 1920’s. This is one of the pieced blocks. Whomever pieced this, did it all by hand. Each small square is less than an inch square.
In keeping with an old tradition, I quilted my initials into one of the blocks.
Now for my painting of the day : A Pot of Poses
Some more flowers to brighten your day. Thanks for visiting!
your posies are so pretty and fun and your quilts are gorgeous!
Love the quilt and the “Pot of Posies”!
I appreciate your comments, I really do!
Gorgeous quilt. I thought I was going to tell you how cute your posies were and then I was wowed by the amazing quilting.
I love the soft pastels and the whites.
