The pink stripe sashing on this quilt top caught my attention.
The nine patch blocks are in groups of 5 by color, alternating with pink stripe blocks...add pink sashing.
You can never have too many pink stripes!
It is all hand pieced.
This booth had a wonderful mix of transfer ware, lace and sewing treasures.
This pin cushion had some type of metal gasket to attach it to something - rather odd, but a nice brown velvet.
The sewing box is three levels - two level are more common. Oddly, it only has two thread holes on the side top. That, along with the gap at the top makes me wonder about inaccurate repairs.
Case goods/small items are fun to look through.
It is like an "I Spy' game
Can you find the:
Woven Hair Fob?
Effective use of small transfer ware plates for display.
A mass quantity of carved bone implements.
|Sterling handled darners, Sterling glove darners|
This case has some nice sterling pieces.
The mother of pearl game pieces were interesting to look through.
I bought the bone pin cushion clamps in the upper left corner.
I also bought a couple quilts, but you have to wait to see those! I'm writing a separate post on those.
I hope you enjoyed a look at the antique show.
Have a great week!
