As so many others, i made this top after having seen it in VINTAGE QUILTS, the Mc Calls's magazine. I had quite a stash of poison greens, shirtings ,turkey reds and chrome yellow. On the first picture you can see they are not all the same, but that doesn't bother me at all. The turkey red border has a black, rather big print. The blue fabric is the only one i bought for this top.
Just have to find time to hand quilt it!
Yesterday i spend most of the time watching TV, Who didn't anyway???
Thinking also about Rosa Parks, that young black girl in Little Rock going to College ,and the Obama's, just splended! I wish him all the best, and consider him also my President!
45 crumb diamond shaped blocks are ready since a few days, my inspiration was a quilt seen in and older QNM, some pics in a next post.
Happy quilting and greetings from Paris, Will V
