I have a box of three lap-sized quilts heading home to Tennessee today. This client is something of a purveyor of the eclectic, so there is a little of every genre here. She has a knack for finding older pieces. This is the second of such quilts I have quilted for her, that is of an unknown, but most certainly older age. It's most likely 1940's or 50's I think, but I am no expert. It's not in the greatest of shape, with many very thin fabrics, burn or stain marks, and piecing that was definitely done before more exacting methods and rotary cutting were around. None the less, these quilts need preserving and loving too.
Julie's second quilt was actually purchased from Wanda at Exuberant Color. It is a scrappy, string-pieced quilt. The black and white blocks give it a pop of design and color. Wanda uses many Westminster and Kaffe fabrics.
We decided on free-quilted (ie, no rulers) wiggly lines in the strips, which all vary in width a little bit. I put a cross-hatch in the black and white dot to set it off.
Have a fun Friday...time for me to get to work.
