More Treasures!

I mentioned the sale I went to last weekend. Here are a couple other things I picked up. I’m not sure of the name of this lock, but I really love it. It doesn’t lay quite flat. I hope to hand quilt this.

It is machine pieced. The blocks are about 14 inches.

Isn’t this a beauty?

This one will need a bit of persuasion to get it to lie flat enough to quilt.

And it will need a number of replacement squares.

This one was all hand pieced.

I’m sure it will take me a while to track down appropriate scraps and repair this, but eventually, I would like to hand quilt this as well.

Have a great day!

    I have made that block in the first quilt several times and didn’t know the name either. I looked it up in Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns and the only name for it is The Colorado Quilt with a source of KC Star 1941.
