There is a new ......

.....pattern on my web

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is available on my web site.

An up close glance.

While attending the Sew Simply Stitched retreat last week in Roosevelt, Megan Legas shared some of her antique quilts with us.  I made certain that I was sitting front row and center so I could get a good look!  Each piece in this quilt is different.

Megan often purchases quilts that need some TLC.  She many times takes a quilt a part , replaces a damaged block with a similar fabric that is available today, and then puts it all back together and does beautiful hand quilting on them.

There are a few blocks that have deteriorated, Megan will replace them and then hand quilt the top.  Her quilting is beautiful, just like I'd like to do when I grow up! :-)

This particular quilting was just so sweet and lovely.  Megan purchases the embroidered red work embroidered blocks, and then finished it in this fabulous setting!

Megan believes that in this quilt top, that the  four corner blocks, once were made from a colored fabric which faded.

This quilt is simple but stunning!  I have a few more to share tomorrow.

Anybody ready for Goin' Fishin'?  I made this little quilt and gave it to my brother.  I have this pattern to give away tomorrow to the 10th person to contact me with their address.
