Quilts, Apples and Autumn Colors
With night temperatures dipping down to the 40's and 50's, it's time for quilts and warm blankets to pull up around our shoulders, to snuggle down into, and to trap the warmth until morning. A few pictures of a quilt that usually lies folded on top of my mother's cedar chest and I hand quilted a couple of years ago....a pink pillow for the guest bedroom bed that I did in a modified flower basket pattern and hand quilted .... and two more pillows I made for the quest bedroom (fondly named "The Girls' Room" by one of my granddaughters.)
This is one of the little pillows; it was made using an antique lace handkerchief. Look at that precious delicate detail. Don't you just love that? I couldn't resist using it to fashion a pretty pillow!
Here is the quilted pillow I made using a basket pattern. I wanted the basket part to pop out, so I did LOTS of hand quilting all around it and only quilted little parts of the basket part.
These two photos above are a pillow made from another piece of antique linen, found in one of our hunts through a flea market. I wanted to show you the really lovely handwork on the corner of it.
