WIPs and UFOs
I also finished off another QAYG quilt from donated quilts and then started work on another UFO which I found when I was looking for my stash of 1930s reproduction fabrics a week ago. These are a set of vintage star blocks from the 1930s-40s and I purchased them from an antique dealer in the US, in the mid 1990s. They didn't come as finished blocks so I needle turned and hand appliqued them to a cream background fabric. I had started to join them together using a 1930s repro fabric but. I only had two rows of blocks joined so pulled them out today to finish the top.
I have almost finished the top and will show photos tomorrow. Then I plan to machine quilt it in a style which was typical for that time. I have several vintage and antique tops and sets of blocks that I had purchased from the US in the 1990s and it's time to get them made into quilts so I can enjoy them.
I'm very happy to have made so much progress this week and hope to get more hand stitching done on between night shift this week. I hope you all enjoyed some stitching time too.
Hugs, Jan Mac
