I tried to remember to take a photo of the information sheets for all the quilts that I photographed. Unfortunately, I missed it on this one and it's a beauty. If any of you know the maker, please let me know. I love the turgoise blue that she used. It makes me think of a pretty turgoise and white polka dot skirt that my mom made in the 1950's.......one for me and one for my sister.
Read the quilt's story here.......just double click on the photo to enlarge it.
Collette and I really liked this quilt. My mom would have liked this one as she has told us she can remember hobos in the 1930's that would come to the back door for food. And being from Iowa, we are familiar with the Hobo convention that is held in Britt,Iowa every summer.
And when I was visiting my mom, she commented that she needed a little something to hang below the clock in her room at the Care Center. So, I used a block that was in her fabrics and made her a little Sunbonnet Sue quilt. The little quilt is only about eight inches square. I liked that brown border fabric that was in my friend, Cindy's stash, as it reminded me of swirling leaves. Perfect for fall!
That's all for today. Busy days ahead with volunteer projects at church, the library and holidays coming up. "What's on the line?" will take a break and return after the New Year. In the meantime, going to try to catch up on photos and projects I've meant to share and just was too busy to do. Back soon........
