This morning the rain has stopped. There was loads of washing, including this old quilt:
I put it in the machine on delicate, and then put it on the fast spin cycle. I also put a couple of colour catchers in. They worked their magic.
This is the first quilt I ever finished. I smile whenever I think about it. I saw it in a magazine, promoted as quilt in a weekend. I started it while I was making my sampler quilt and only ONE YEAR LATER it was finished. It is hand pieced and hand quilted.
I bought a cheap fabric for the back and the colour ran through to the front. I didn't (and still don't) like the border fabric but was persuaded by the owner of the fabric shop that it was a good choice. It needs to have the binding replaced as it has worn through in a few places and there is a hole in the top left corner that I noticed as I hung it out. This is the back:
On another note, I went to an antiques fair with my mother this week. We enjoyed all the exhibits but one in particular caught my camera lens. The exhibit involved a dozen or so mannequins with dresses from bygone periods. This was my favourite and I thought you might like it also
This was a display about watches!!!!
