Here is a BLAST from my past.
A Vintage "Victoria!" ;-)
A quilt top I made in 1993-94 after a trip to Arizona and a fixation on Kokopelli. I can remember piecing the arrows, making it up as I went along... I had no idea how to figure it out mathematically then... I rcvd this quilt top back from a dear friend, and I will repair it, as many of the seams have not held together... I had a really lousy sewing machine then...
I will have to add fabrics to get it to even finish out square... It is in pretty bad shape...
I painted the Kokopelli on the main piece of fabrics with diluted acrylics, and that has actually held up really well.
I look forward to finishing this gift and sending it back... It will be a joy to quilt after all these years... I had forgotten what the top even looked like... what fun to see it again.
My friend also gave me his grandmother's needle case that he found in her house. It's in perfect condition, and look at the label inside... Feb 24, 1914 made in Czechoslovakia...
A lovely gift I will treasure forever.
Fall is on the horizon...The geese tell me so!
Send me your address and I will get it mailed off ASAP!
I started reading it and I quickly found myself on Chapter 15... lick-ity split. fun read! Thanks for Sharing it with us Clare!
