Oldie


Because I am busy with finishing my purple stars I will show you a "oldie"! It is one of my first little quilts. I made it with the inspiration from the book "Little Quilts". I also tea dye it to get it aged. I am so happy with the result. It is hanging in my living room for years And it never bored me.

It is handpieced and handquilted.

Your little "oldie" is darling, Lucy! You did a wonderful job with the colors. No wonder you never tire of it...it's a classic!

Your crocuses are so sweet! Crocuses always look to me as though they are stretching their necks (stems) as far as they possibly can go, to reach the warm Spring sunshine.

I've got fluffy white *things* in my flower beds too...s-n-o-w!

Sometimes these small simple quilts are the best aren't they! I have one like that. Hmmm, wonder if I have a picture of it anywhere???

What a nice quilt. I'm still waiting for the book, and seeing your quilts rise my expectations.

Beautiful little quilt Lucy...I also love what is in that Little Quilts Book...and have made several. You've done a lovely job with making it feel vintage. I can see where you'd never tire of it! *VBS* I don't think I would tire of it either..*S* It's got staying power..

Did I ever say I love the background to your blog? It inspired me to do a special background of my own... :)

Your little quilt is really beautiful! And it was a very good idea to dye fabrics with tea, the colors are so sweet.
