I know, it's shocking that this quilt blog will include some quilt content after all the knitting of late!
I bought this top a few summers ago at an antique place in Winthrop, Maine for about $15. The fabrics seem to range from the 50s to the 60s or maybe even 40s-70s. (Please comment if you have any info about this.) It's in pretty good shape, just a few damaged blocks around the edges. I was thinking of hand-quilting it with perl cotton this winter - any suggestions?
I also received this cute little mini in the mail from Susan (aka Chickenfoot) of the 6"-12'' mini swap, since I haven't received my June quiltlet yet. Thanks so much!
I hope to make my two September minis this weekend - maybe these goodies I received in a care package from my aunt in Florida will be the inspiration. Look at all those beautiful buttons!
