Some of the fabrics are really weird. Check out the Bambi-like deer in the flower above. The fabrics date to the 1950s and 1960s.
I finished this top literally years ago, and it was in my stack of shame when Joey last visited. We pieced a back, and she took it home to quilt for me.
Isn't the quilting wonderful? It was done by Joey on her long arm machine.
All of this has put me in a vintage mood, so I started working on this.
When I first learned to quilt, this was the way it was done, although our templates were not made of such nice stuff, usually just cardboard like cereal boxes.
We have had the best of weather today, a rain shower that watered the gardens and cleared the air, and lovely summer sunshine. August starts next week, and summer will be on the way out.
I wish you the joy of summer today, and of course the joy of quilting.
