A Quarter Inch from the Edge. We are showing quilts before the days of blogging. The one I am showing you today is circa 1999! I made it for a shop sample for the long gone Halifax quilt shop, The Quilters Hope Chest. Owned and operated by the late Ann Hope. I worked there for a while back in the day and taught classes as well. I still miss the quilty camaraderie we enjoyed at this shop. Fabric and Friends, that's what it's all about!
It was a fun quilt to make. It is queen sized and foundation pieced using preprinted tissue paper patterns by McCall's. Using the tissue makes tearing off when finished very easy.
I handquilted it quickly since it was a shop sample and needed to be displayed in good time. There is muslin on the back. There is no label attached but I know I made one and it is kicking around somewhere in my sewing room. I guess I need to sew that on today if I can find it. I use this quilt a lot so I see it all the time. It is one of my faves. It is soft and warm and cuddly. I don't have any photos so I took one today and as you can see not a very good one. It is horrible, rainy and dark here today.
I have been nursing a miserable cold all week and it's such a crappy dark, wet day, I think I will cuddle up with this quilt on the sofa this afternoon and take a nap.
Think about writing up a post about one of your golden oldies and link up with Jennifer. There is a chance to win a lovely giveaway prize!
Hope you get some time to do something quilty today!
