...that the best things in life are the people we love, the places we've been, and the memories we've made along the way. I was able to wake up leisurely this morning, and these were the thoughts I entertained before I started my day. I'm finishing a red and cream quilt and just have the top and bottom borders to finish, and then it will go off to be quilted.
The museum had just received a few new quilts that they hadn't displayed as of yet. Remember, that we were at the museum at the time of the eclipse.
I always marvel at the hand quilting on old quilts. I think it makes them extra special.
This unusual piece caught my attention, because I grew up near Worthington, Minnesota.
I remember polyester.....when it was introduced I was a fan. It meant you could ride in the car for hours and when you arrived at your destination you didn't have a wrinkle. One can't mention polyester with out mentioning leisure suits! Anyway, this quilt is made of polyester.
There was not enough of the yellow print for the alternate block, so a plain yellow was added. This quilt also had an interesting narrow red border.
I believe the date reads 1843.
For some unknown reason, I do not have information for this quilt.
