Doesn’t have the same ring to it as Throwback Thursday, does it? In any case, I spent the whole day yesterday cleaning and getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I sewed not one stitch.
I did hang up some different quilts for the season. I picked this one up a while back at an antique market for a mere $20. It is probably the oldest quilt I own, my guess is that it predates the Civil War. Some fabrics have completely fallen out. But look at that stitching!
And here is another quilt, not quite so old.
Sorry for the skewed picture. It is hanging in my foyer and I couldn’t get a straight on shot. I made this about 15 years ago. It is all done by machine on my trusty 1955 Singer 201. I cut freezer paper templates for the applique and used a glue stick to turn the edges under. Then I top stitched the pieces down using invisible thread. Here are a couple detail shots.
And here is an even older one.
This quilt actually appeared in a magazine around 1997. Possibly QUILT or Country Quilts. I would have to look it up. I had quite a few quilts published in this same family of magazines from the early 90s until probably 2006 or so when they changed editors.
Time to make the cranberry salad before work! Have a great Tuesday.
Linking up with Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
