Scrap Quilt Finally Finished
This quilt was started last winter and now it’s finished. It was quilted by Ellen Replogle, whose written a number of quilting pattern books. She’s family and we’re very proud of her. The quilt has no batting, just the muslin onto which the strips are sewn. Looked pretty flat, until I washed it and now it’s all poofy and nice. I think the muslin was unwashed while I was strip piecing, so it probably shrank, facilitating the puffiness.
After it was on the bed the ordinary pillows didn’t look good, so I made new pillow cases.
I LOVE THEM! I think I slept better last night, just because of all the lovely colors. Now, I have to search for the pretty wide lace that someone gave me, and make a skirt. The lavender grey walls look pretty blah. Think I’ll paint some flowers on them. You might note, also, the photograph of the red tulip hanging over the bed. That’s the photograph that started my little flower quilts and you can see the art quilt of this particular flower on my home page.
Note the rectangular pillow with the golden colored grid. That’s a Lorna Moffat pillow that I bought about 10 years ago. She’s recently written a book entitled Silk Unraveled. It’s a beautiful book and I’m so proud to own the pillow. When I bought it, I’d never heard of her; I should have bought two pillows!
