patchwork





it's been too long. sorry. but we've been away and i've not been able to post.

so, now that we are home i'll say hello and put up some pictures i took of beautiful antique patchwork quilts made by a hopi artist. reminds me of gees bend and the artistry of necessity there. my favourite it the long strip quilt.


i found them in a very old back issue of a quilters magazine and had to take pictures before i sent it off to my swap partner Courtney (who hopefully isn't reading this) because she is smitten with patchwork. me too. anyways, i forgot to take pictures (what else is new) of the magazine cover. hopefully she'll do that for me when it arrives in Michigan.

hope everyone is enjoying the summer. i will maybe have some crafting to show soon. i'm trying to decide where to put the sewing machine now that the third bedroom is a proper 'guest room.'

good to see you! i like the stip quilt the best too. found something for you a few days ago, but it requires a sewing machine so you will have to find someplace for it....
