Victory

This quilt fought me the whole way.  It is finally put together.  Even though it is not perfectly square, I am declaring victory and moving on!

Slow progress

I have finally made some progress on my latest project.  This one just did not come together easily for me.  Something about that sashing....Here's the antique quilt.

Here is my progress

Great fabric selection

Reader Lucy sent me an email with a suggestion for sashing fabric for  my doll quilt reproduction. She found Durham Quilt Collection by Lucien.  The narrower stripe was the perfect size for my quilt.



Here's what I have so far.

Four antique quilts

I am focusing my collection on small quilted and patchwork items now, so I decided to sell some of my large quilts.  Four of the them are in my Etsy shop now.  The indigo and pink bear paw is just gorgeous.  You can also contact me directly if you are interested by leaving a comment or purchase through Etsy.  Thanks for looking!

Downsizing continues

Just sold of bunch of vintage fabrics to a lovely buyer in Japan.  I think that is the farthest I have ever sent something.  I just listed two doll cradles and a small doll cupboard on Etsy.  Time for someone else to enjoy these delightful antiques.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/216157603/antique-doll-dry-sink-or-cupboard-childs?
