This awesome pile is a gift from my friend, Leigh of LeedleDeedleQuilts. She rescued this pile of old, pre-cut apple-core pieces and thought I would like them. (She thought correctly, I might add. She knows me well!)
I've never made an apple-core quilt, but these babies are screaming to be put together. We can't let all that cutting, nor those killer fabrics go to waste, can we? Anyone out there who has made an apple core quilt have any great tips to share?Leigh also rescued this vintage spider-web mini-quilt. It's small but it's all put together and some hand quilting has been done. I'm going to finish the quilting, bind it and hang it on the wall in my sewing room. I love it!
More vintage fabric goodness.
I always thought of Spider web quilts as fairly recent, so it was fun to see this one. My guess is 1930's from the fabrics, but could be later. Thanks again for these wonderful treasures, Leigh!
It's different than most pyrex I've seen as the interior of the bowl is not white - it's clear. The bottom of the bowl is clear glass. It's got some wear and tear + the color makes me think it's old, but I could be totally wrong - maybe it's from Kmart 2 years ago. Anyone know anything about this piece? Regardless, I'm totally smitten by the color. I don't have anything like it and I'm happy just looking at it on my shelf. Which is really what matters when collecting 'stuff', right?
