Hi All! I just love to read all your comments and your blogs. What great work everyone is doing!
The quilt in the last post is a pattern by Debby Caffrey called The Cat's Meow.
Here is a photo of a quilt I finished binding today. This quilt belongs to my friend Carol, and was her husbands when he was a boy. The batting had gotten all gobby in the quilt and she had taken it apart and had it machine quilted about five years ago. It was never bound and finished and when she pulled it out of the closet to show me, I offered to do it for her. I found some solid yellow that is such a close match, and machine stitched it to the front and hand sewed it to the back. Hand sewing took about four hours. This quilt is a long twin size and is probably made from feed sacks and flour sacks. It is in very good condition. Some of the embroidery thread is broken in places and there are a few darks marks.
This is another quilt Carol pulled out of the closet and said her grandma made. It is on a twin bed in the photo, but the quilt is square. It is machine pieced, handquilted and machine bound. The red is really vibrant and the quilt is in excellent condition.
Carol says she has more quilts to show me, but they will have to wait until another day.
