Pieces from the Past - Sampler Quilt
The red fabric is by Windham, Redworks, by Susie Osburn, from Michigan State University Museum. I bought it because I like directional fabric, and it was red. I have had it in the bottom drawer for ages, and thought I would give it an airing. I love to cut stripes across, never thinking when I bought it that the stripe goes across the width, meaning I had to cut the fabric the length of it to get the stripe. Most annoying, but I think I have enough left to add in the extra 5 blocks when (if) I get to that stage. I might make a pattern of it too.
I am not going to quilt this for the class, as I want people to see the back and the hand piecing. So, that has let me off the hook a bit!
If you want more information about the class please get in touch with Karen at the Sewing Sanctuary. It will be held on 3rd Saturday of the month, starting February 2010.
