Something traditional



You all know I love the traditional quilts as well as the artistic ones. I love the historic aspect, the beauty combined with utility, and the comfort factor. Here is a quilt shared by my friend Carla at our last gathering. It looks like an antique quilt top but it was made from reproduction fabrics to achieve that effect.

Yesterday I took a day off work and spent some time alone working on some old projects and some new ones. I deliberately ignored the housework begging to be done, and I closed the door of the laundry room.

It was a wonderful, peaceful day. Unfortunately, no little elves came in and took care of all those neglected chores, so I guess I know what I have to do next!

Sometimes the best thing to do is close that laundry room door!
You probably have enough clothes to go one more week anyway!!

Where the heck did those elves get to anyways? I've been waiting for what seems like FOR-EVER for them to show up at my place. *sigh* :o)

Really cool quilt! I hope you are still able to ignore the laundry. No...it won't go away...but maybe someone else will get the notion to do it. ;o)

What a wonderful quilt!! What 'repro' fabric is it? 1930's?

They are 30's reproduction fabrics used with muslin. Jen

It is the red that really makes it sparkle.
