I'm drawn to old quilts. This one was made by my Great Aunt Katie. From the fabrics Henrietta and I think the quilt was made in the 40's--maybe early 50's. I never knew Aunt Katie, she exists for me in family stories and this quilt.
This quilt has been well-loved. I remember sleeping under it as a child. A Seminole strippy with a small floral print on a yellow background, and a solid fabric on the back I'd call "Muskmelon". A plain green square runs down each strip. Reproducing this quilt is on my bucket list.
- Sew more Birds in Air blocks together
- Sew more rows of the Trip Around the World
- Load a top on the Princess
