Where does inspiration come from? Sometimes when I'm looking at antique quilts online, I see one that I'd like to own, but can't afford. This will be my version of an antique quilt for sale at this site:
Pinwheels Doll Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania $335.
"Four Hourglass blocks are combined to create a Pinwheel pattern in this lovely 1920's doll quilt. Excellent condition. Well scaled to the size of the piece, including the cable quilted border. Measures 28 1/2" square. Berks County, Pennsylvania origin."
My version is blue instead of pink and is 16.5 inches square right now, before borders. It will finish a little smaller than the original and will have a small blue and then white border as the original does. I wanted to post even though it's not finished yet because I'm including a picture every Monday on Elizabeth's website:
She gives bloggers an opportunity to show what little quilt they are working on each Monday and I like to see the updates.
Here is a picture of the back, to show you the seams pressed open. There are a lot of seams in this one, and it seemed best to press some of them open, to make it less bulky. Hope you are having a great Monday!
