Two weeks ago I attended Dana Auctions and followed along with the quilts that were being auctioned from Dawn's collection. Rachel and I connected for nearly the entire auction and chatted for 4 hours--what fun!
I purchased a "lot" of 3 antique quilts/tops including this Log Cabin. I'll tell you about the other two another time.
This turn-of-the-century top . . .
. . . is completely hand pieced to a muslin foundation.
There are some wonderful shirting fabrics along with madders, dark greens, pinks, browns and a little red.
This is the entire piece. Not sure if I will finish this top or not but notice the two extra blocks on the upper left . . .
. . . I've removed them and will make a monthly mini at some point :)
On another note . . .
Connie and I went for a hike where she works and were amazed at the size of these large green-leaf plants. They were huge! So had to find out what they were and ended up ordering some seeds on Etsy.
This month's Farmhouse flowers. Love those lilies!
We had grilled watermelon steaks as part of our July 4th cookout. Yum!
See you again, soon!
