Joanne didn't piece this quilt top, because I don't think that she was living in the 1860's when it is believed to have been hand pieced. Wow. Joanne took it the Latimer Quilt Museum in Tillamook and that's where they dated it.
|I love how the piecer used whatever they had on hand. The blue stripe fabric above is obviously cut from a former garment.|
Quilted with So Fine! thread and the Baptist Fans board.
|What a fun quilt. Start with a Friendship star block, then add 4 patch units to the corners, to make it "Milky Way". Piece with Monsters vs Robots fabric|
|I love 1930's prints to begin with, so this quilt was a joy to work on. Large blocks, probably 12" square at least.|
Quilted as an edge to edge design with Baptist Fans, and pale yellow King Tut thread. The background is actually a very pale yellow, not white as it reads in the photos.
|I had never heard of Yukata fabrics before, but they are very lightweight cotton, usually used to make summer Kimonos in Japan.|
White backgrounds with indigo blue dye on all, and various Asian motifs. Very pretty. Quilted with Gingko leaves panto
|I think I want to be related to Pat. This is for a cousin, that I believe she only recently met!|
|All of the fans are hand appliqued with thread that matches them Imagine changing needles to applique these points down every couple of inches. Outlined in the blades of the fans, then a tight loop background fill.|
Repeat the same background loop in the rest solid blocks, only looser, making the quilt softer. SID on all the sashing strips and cornerstones.
