Yesterday I received a gift from a cousin, these two quilt tops!
This lone star had been machine washed and dried. I spent almost an hour snipping tangled threads and pressing it. I could probably spend another hour doing more of the same. Luckily the seams all seem to be intact.
I think I might have this machine quilted. The big white squares seem to scream for some detailed scroll work.
This top had belonged to my late aunt.
Then there was this Grandmother's flower garden, all hand pieced. This one of course has to be hand quilted! It appears to be quit old. It had been given to the cousin from her X-mother in law, therefore she had no attachment to it.
Now for all you quilters out there, I've never paid attention as to how one of these are quilted. Do you quilt around every hexie? Or is it more in color circles?
THANK You Cousin!! I love them both.
Life is good.
