The Little Quilt Hanging has started, and will be a WIP for quite some time...the voids will be filled and the painter's tape gone.
Click HERE for the before pictures. Nothing but white!
This is the top of the landing. You will see a few familiar little quilts I have shared before...and some new (vintage) ones I will be telling you about.
I think the next 'hanging' will have to be a batch, its a big job to hang these!
I've chosen to mix era's and repros with originals.
In this picture I have 150 year span represented. The oldest, a reproduction would be early 1800's, and the 'newest' is the vintage red above the window circa 1950's - with the rest falling in between.
I still have a mix of vintage and reproduction ones to add, in time I'll show you part 2.
For now, I will share some close ups in the next week or two of the quilts and provide more details on each.
This little one is machine pieced.
Instead of quilting, this creative jewel has a yarn "Lazy Daisy" stitched in the middle of each block.
It came with an older doll and a lot of doll clothes I picked up in the 1980's. The kids played with it - it was part of many teddy bear teas.
The blocks are about 3.5"
In the next few days I'll post details for each little quilt....source, fabrics, close ups etc!
I want a wide representation on the walls, so still to come are an applique, mourning print churn dash, whole cloth with birds...
What else do I need?
