An old quilt




As most of you know, Al and I love to browse in the antique stores. Sometimes I have my camera with me, sometimes not. I love to get ideas from old quilts. Well, this is a picture of an antique quilt that was part of a trunk show at our guild. Sure am glad I had the camera with me that day. It's a very well done and well preserved quilt.
Wouldn't it be beautiful quilt done in just pinks and browns... maybe civil war fabrics. While I was here in Arizona, I bought a few more Jo Morton fabrics from her "Annabelle" collection. This would be a perfect pattern to use and and you know, it's really pretty easy. One block is a snowball block... think it was about 12" square and the other block is just a double nine patch. Then set on point. EASY.
