|Jointed mohair bear I made in 1989|
After some TLC it's ready for bedding.
I'm auditioning the ticking - I like the aged look without the work of 'aging' it myself. Of course I will need a pillow case and sheet.
The little quilt is one I made of vintage blocks I hand quilted. Maybe too big for this cradle.
The rug is Amish woven from old jeans.
|Small Quilt - Hand Quilted|
I was lucky to get these old blocks from Karen (Log Cabin) Quilter) last year.
I LOVE the prints and machine stitched the 6 blocks together - I found a great mourning print reproduction for the binding.
To make the 6" blocks:
- Each block is 4 dark and 4 light flying geese units.
- The units finish at 1.5" x 3"
- Keep it scrappy - not all the pieces have to match but they can if you want!
I saw this set at an antique shop, fun to see a complete set! Not so wonderful....the $1,200 price.
The detail is fabulous...mattress, sheets, pillow in case, blanket and a quilt!
Maybe there is some sentiment in the price.
It's small - maybe 8" x 18"
Nice size for collectors with small spaces

I've been looking through lots of old blocks for ideas - these are asking for some black setting squares with red sashing...a nice break from larger projects.
I'm even considering taking some of my old blocks apart and using the fabrics in other blocks...still in the thinking stage...
Do you have any vintage blocks?
Where did you get them?
Have a great week!
