This past weekend my husband and I travelled to Amherst Island with my sister-in-law and her husband to attend the Emerald Music Festival. We stayed in a wonderful cottage that belongs to my husband’s cousin. Not only was it filled with some awesome antiques, she also had a collection of old quilts that immediately caught my attention…this one especially. It is hand-appliqued and hand-quilted The applique pieces are pretty worn in some spots. This is the only block that has at least some of each appliqued piece. The rest are pretty faded.
I love the scalloped edge. Sadly, there was no label. (Note to self…label ALL quilts!)
We had a blast cooking breakfast on this 1952 Moffat stove…once we figured out how to turn it on!!
And best of all, I found the perfect spot to work away on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.
Til next time…
