Dawn is having a free BOM. Here's the first one:
I used the back basting method for the
needle turn applique which is the
technique I like the best.
For some reason my camera didn't pick
up the colors - beige background and
a med. blue print.
I can't wait to see what Dawn has for
the second block.
We're only to use fabric from our stash.
That's good news for me. I might do this
one over again. We'll see...

Today there was a meeting of our
local Quilt History Study Group.
What great heirlooms were brought
in! But my favorite was one that
Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum brought
in: (permission granted)
***I have made a correction here to what I
previously wrote. ****
This quilt is from Lancaster County c. 1860,
from a member of the Keller/Brubaker family,
the quilter is unknown.
There is a similar quilt that was made by
a neighbor, Fanny S. Bucher, 1860 (we did not
see this quilt yesterday)
Here are a few more close ups:
I'm amazed at that tiny flying geese.
Square in a square "on point" no less!
