I was asked to post a closeup picture of a block in the quilt I made using my husband's grandmother's painted quilt blocks. See the previous post for a full picture. I am also posting a picture of what the painted blocks looked like before I cut them up.
This is a photo of the label I put on the back. I described the label in the previous post. Grandma Jenkins did the painted part. I added a computer printed picture on fabric and gave a little information in the lower left corner.
Tomorrow is a holiday in the USA. It is the Fourth of July. A celebration of our freedom. We will be staying at home. There are too many people out on the highways. We will be able to see a fireworks display right from our front door. I am posting pictures of two patriotic quilts I made. The first photo is of a bargello flag I made in 1999. It is machine pieced and quilted. Very easy to make.
The next photo is of a quilt I made in 1996 called "Americana Star". It is machine pieced and hand quilted.
Finally, I am posting a photo of a top I finished just a couple days ago. It has a flag on the top, so I think it is also appropriate for July 4th. The quilt has wool appliques. It is from a pattern called "Midwest Pride" and was published in American Patchwork & Quilting's Quilt Sampler (Spring/Summer 2007). A quilt shop called "The Cotton Shop" in Perham, Minnesota was featured. This was the quilt the staff designed. I think it will make a great quilt to display in the summer time.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
