Another Save

April 6, 2008

And another quilt top has been saved from the depths of the linen closet. My customer’s grandmother pieced this top in the 1950’s. It has moved from family member to family member hiding out in various closets. Eva now plans to hang it in her entry way on a quilt hanger. It is all hand pieced and the colors are very rich. I used continuous curve quilting to emphasize the pieced pattern. Debra embroidered the corner label.

  1. CC was the perfect treatment!


  2. Lovely!


  3. What a beauty! I’m glad this quilt has been saved from the closet and will now be enjoyed.


  4. The colors are fun. Reminds me of a box of “summer chocolate.” I am hearing more and more the term “mid-century” when referring to things from the 50s. Geez that makes me feel old.


  5. I was just wondering how the labels worked–looks lovely. I assume the lady was pleased.
