Triple Play3 reminds me of windowpanes. I used the rest of the light-colored prints and added red and blue borders. I did simple quilting in the ditch and 1/4" straight lines in the borders. I had lots of threads to bury!
2" squares and 1/2" strips and corner blocks worked well together.
This time I did a 1/2" binding. I think it's my favorite. I used 1/4" masking tape as a guide for quilting the straight lines--that was a first. It worked fine.
Here are 1, 2, and 3. I forgot to mention sizes: #1 is 20" x 20", #2 is 17" x 17" and #3 is 18-1/2" x 21."
On another note . . .
Do you follow Barbara Brackman's Material Culture blog? Every so often she will post a picture of a quilt that was published in HQPNJ's book, New Jersey Quilts. Here is a link to an 1860 medallion. The quilt is 3rd from the bottom and appears on p. 104 in our book :) The leaves were actual tracings of ones from the family farm in Scotland and the fabrics were stripes and plaids. The quilt was sent to the maker's daughter who immigrated in the 1840s and lived in Scotch Plains, NJ.
