Prim Quilt from the past, present and some painting

 My Prim String quilt from the past.  I don't remember when I made it, many years ago, but an online friend said it looks like fabric stacked on a shelf.  Lots of Brannock and Patek fabrics.  It's hanging on the ceiling in the dining room.
 Another Cross quilt for a sister-in-law.  Love the dark muslin I found for the background.
 Painting a little trim red to match the red roof, lots more to go, but taking my time, it's so hot and the biting flies. And there's a ladder involved.  The old metal chairs were found at the green dumpsters, a great find since they have Yellowstone stamped on them.  Nothing fancy, but it suits me.
And that other find, you were probably thinking, "what", painted in a white wash and now projects I need to finish are looking at me.  The Zipper purse, the jumper wool tote, the angel fabric, vintage, from Brannock and Patek, to be quilted for a little lap quilt, Lynda Hall's A Little Porch Time, only have two blocks made so far and the magazine.  There's a project in it I want to make.

  1. This online friend agrees, it does look like fabric on a shelf. I'ts delightful and such a good use of fabric scraps.
    Love the red but be careful up that ladder and mind the biting flies.
    Aren't found things just the best, I found the perfect bedhead yesterday, just needs a bit of love!

  2. The red trim to the house looks really good.
    I like how you have your WIP hanging on the ladder, out in the open and a reminder of what's needing done. Too easy to pack it away and forget.
