WHAT WAS I THINKING?!!! All by hand?
About a little over a year ago, I attended an auction of a quilter who passed away leaving 3 rooms full to the brim of fabric and notions. I was in heaven of course, and if I had the room to hold everything, I'm pretty sure I would have bid and purchased it all. In the many boxes I won, she did not have any pieces of fabric larger than 10" everything had been cut so I was in a crunch and wondered what to make with her vintage treasures.
A scrappy log cabin quilt completely made out of hand to practice my hand-piecing & hand-quilting is what I ended up on doing. I started out w/ a bang and stayed up many nights to cut my pieces and piece my strips together in no particular color scheme other than to maintain the red square in the middle for all blocks. Eventually, it became too overwhelming and joined the other abandoned projects.
Going through it, I realized I accomplished quite a bit, I counted 62, 9" blocks and 8, 18" pieced blocks. I don't think I will ever finish this quilt, so I'm wondering is there anyone who would like to take this over? Is there a quilter's guild that would like to have this to work on? If so, leave a comment here, maybe I'll split it amongst those interested. Have a look at the photos and see for yourself. I don't expect whoever does take this from my hands to finish it completely by hand, but I would love to see it finished :)
Look at the cute Holly Hobbie fabric!!
Anyone want these? Someone with a more trained eye can tell what years these fabrics come from. If you do know, pls. tell me, I would love to know!
