|Approximately 40" Framed Medallion Reproduction 1884|
This is a reproduction from the book:
Great Little Quilts
Antique Crib and Doll-Size Quilts
by Eleanor Levie
In the book the original quilt corner stones are appliqued 1884.
I hand pieced the center, and hand quilted it. I machine pieced all of the surrounding blocks.
This is the same book my Honeybee quilt is from.
Keeping with a Christmas theme, here's a grouping of red and green sewing items.
The drawstring bag is crochet and perfect for a hand sewing project like hex's or embroidery.
The pin cushion is rather festive with the red satin bow. I wonder if she had seasonal pin cushions?
Who is that guy in pajamas?
He's a tape measure, marked Japan.
He measures in inches and centimeters.
(A little disclaimer here) I didn't find this lump of coal pin cushion in my stocking, I found it in an antique shop in Pennsylvania.
The center is coiled paper that used to be filled with pins.
This lump of coal pin cushion was an advertising piece. Every time you reached for a pin, you had a little reminder who to call for all your ice AND coal needs.
Have a great week!
Do you use red and green quilts year around?
