Here are a few more pics from my visit to the New England Quilt Museum the other day (As much as I loved the exhibit of Japanese quilts, I am also so drawn to antique American quilts).
Notice the "big" stitches -
Some charming red work, 1889:
Such a lovely "prized possession" this must have really been -
And lastly, this treasure trove of antique fabrics:
I'm noticing half square triangles everywhere. I am making something with lots of little half square triangles too. It is a "study quilt" for the American Quilt Study Group. I know I read somewhere that we are requested to not show the study quilts on our blogs, not yet... but just so ya know.... that's where most of my quilting energy has been going lately!
Hope all my quilt buddies are having a nice spring.... (when will spring really reach Massachusetts?) or a lovely autumn in the other hemisphere!
