What I'm doing now....
Binding is one of my favourite tasks in quilt making. I suspect the same pleasure is derived from hand quilting.
Yesterday I visited an antique quilt exhibition at Avalon Uniting Church. Thanks to Cherry Pie Designs for posting the notice about it. Avalon is a beach side village.
The quilts ranged from the late 1800s to the 1950s and the variety of designs was very interesting. Once again, no pictures were allowed but I'm sure you've seen plenty of antique quilts.
I'm always struck by the bold colours in the fabrics, now faded. My favourites were a Carolina Lily in pink and green; a Carpenter's Wheel in what looked like Minick & Simpson fabrics (I suppose they too have been inspired by antique quilts); and two indigo and white quilts.
A delightful way to spend the afternoon.
