This and That

I am working through my stash to pick out the fabrics for the Rail Fence QAL.
Got a bit distracted!

I had a draw just few lines.

This morning I was looking for some old pictures and spotted this image of a very loved antique quilt. Check out the triangles.

Freeform blocks!




They were 3/4 inch small! Amazing, right?

I so admire the patience of quilt-makers of that generation!

  5. Beautiful drawing, she looks thoughtful.
    3/4 of an inch! Holy Smokes that's little! They're great and I especially like that they don't all march in the direction that you expect them to.
