Monday Peek


On Mondays this month I get to give you a peek at my Celebrate Spring challenge that Darlene and Nicole were doing together. They bought FQ packs and decided to challenge each other to make a quilt with them. Well it just so happens I bought some 5" charm packs of this fabric in Paducah to make something for my Aunt. So I decided I would play along. Now don't panic that you see quilting already. I was really stupid. I got so carried away in getting it done this month for her that I forgot to take pictures along the way for the Monday peek! So these will have to do! I have it about 1/2 quilted. I had time this weekend and decided I just needed to keep going and get this baby done. I am soooo pleased with the results. It is looking better than I even imagined. Next week you'll see more.


And now some more antique quilts from Paducah.... here we get into my tired and blurry mode!!!! :) I'm so bummed the above quilt is blurry - but I still will get an idea from the pic. Enjoy!

I also have to appologize for not including the signs for the next few. They were all similar and the signs were not real discriptive and I can't figure out which one goes to which quilt. So instead of link them up with the wrong credit I'll just say that they belong to the Pilgrim/Roy Collection and date around 1840-1880.
