Just before I left for North Carolina my mailman delivered two new additions for the Depre Quilt Museum.
Look at the darling 50s cowboy print throughout. It is just the right size for a 4 year old’s nap and the fort in the living room.
I am loving the setting. But I would never tackle a binding of a hexie quilt by going around each and every hexie. For me it’s either applique to a straight border or cut it straight. This lady is am better quilter than I.
What do you think these initials are"?
But the 1937 is clear as day and that makes me smile.
I might make some Pieced Hexies in my 30’s repros and applique them to the open white blocks and of course it will be quilted. I am a big believer that quilting the top will provide it a longer life. I will document that I added my hexie rosettes on the labeling so 100 years from now someone will realize this quilt spanned 76 years.
I wonder if Dorothy, Clark, Donald and Ralph would think that was a grand idea?
Today I travel home from spending time in North Carolina, first teaching at the retreat and then three days of sewing with Bonnie. Ideas have been hatched, things are happening, projects have been worked on. But the best part is the laughter. We have laughed and laughed and laughed.
It has been a very good week.
Enjoy your day,
