Here's an oldie from 1989. I was looking for something in the linen closet the other day, and ran into this. I'd forgotten I even had it! I made this for my Mom, and it was made for a specific spot in her apartment, as I remember. When Mom passed away 9 years ago, I got this back. I stuck it in the linen closet and forgot about it. I think the pattern is Old Maid's Puzzle and it was 4 blocks, but I made the 4 patches that come together in the center into one large patch. When I look at this, I think of "Miami Vice" and remember all the soccer games where I sat and did the hand quilting. I'm not terrible impressed with it now - I think the contrast is too low. But it's nice and summery and I'm enjoying it hanging in the hallway.
Here's a better shot of the hand quilting. I used a peach thread, which barely shows.
I'm making Very Slow Progress on the Disappearing 9-Patch/I Spy quilt. One more session of trimming the rest of the blocks and I'll be ready to get them up on the design wall. Then the fun begins!
I thought this carousel horse from the local county fair was pretty cool! It's a Sea Horse! I love that metallic turquiose and the fin-thing on the back of the saddle.
I hope y'all are having a great summer!
