To keep my spirits up while toiling at the computer, I've taken little mini sewing breaks to paper-piece some tiny Log Cabin blocks. They are so cute. I have no plans for them, but they're fun to make. Maybe I'll sew them into a doll quilt. Speaking of doll quilts, the mailman has been good to me this week. I received 2 more doll quilts via mail.
On Tuesday...Isn't this one nice? It's from the 1930's and measures 20' x 20".
This one came the next day. A simple 4-Patch on point c1900-1910, with some repairs made in the 1930's (based on the fabrics appliqued over the worn patches.) It has a neat homespun blue/white check binding. It is 20" x 21".
I don't think I shared these with you yet. They came a few weeks ago while I was busy getting ready for my Florissant, MO trip. This c1930's Periwinkle is an eye popper with all that red, no quilting, just backed with muslin and front and back edges turned in without binding. It is 18" x 22 1/2".
This c1880-1900 Nine-Patch fits perfectly on the large walnut doll bed I got in New Hampshire this year. It is 14 1/2" x 19 1/2". The back is pieced of several pieces of homespun in charcoal/white and tan/white.
Ok, that's the end of my break for this evening. Back to work! Keep stitching. I'll be stitching again soon, I hope.
