On my Design Wall (the floor) at the cabin:
I found a quilt top at an estate sale recently, and liked the squares and not the sashing, so I removed the sashing this week. And earlier this summer I found some pretty blue fabric with birds featured on it, that was on sale at a variety store. They are going to be together in this new arrangement of alternating squares. Go to Design Wall Mondays to see other quilter's projects: Patchwork Times
Below is the quilt top as I found it, with indigo blues and shirtings for the squares and what looks like feedsack fabric for the sashing and cornerstones:
The blue fabric I bought was at a variety store where there are stacks and stacks of yardage piled high, with all quality of fabrics mixed together. This one is a pretty blue, and the selvage reads: Andoverfabrics.com, created by Renee Nanneman of Need'L Love....2010. Not knowing what I was going to do with it, I bought it because I so loved the fabric. I researched the fabric on the web, and found a lovely pattern for it, "Farmhouse Retreat Quilt". The pattern features this fabric and is a free pattern at Andoverfabrics.com. (if you want to see the pattern: Quilt Pattern featuring bird fabric )
But now I am thinking I'm going to use it to redo the old quilt top pictured above. What do you think?
Also, now I have this lovely feedsack looking former sashing that I can now use in some new project. Any suggestions for it?
