I was on a tri-state road trip last weekend to attend a fabric study day. I detoured to Bowling Green, KY to visit the Elizabeth Richardson exhibit again with a friend - WONDERFUL!!! I'm planning on stopping again on the winter drive to Florida. If you're in the area, stop in. The trip included a visit toWhittle's - two bags full, please. Do you notice a few solids in there? Jan and I are headed to Michigan in a couple weeks for Gwen's Liberated Medallion retreat. I'm taking only solids to work with - it will be a stretch.
My stash booty is resting on a quilt back (blog post here) that's been accepted to 'In the American Tradition' exhibit for the International Quilt Festival 2012-13 schedule (premiering in Houston at Quilt Market) - YEA ME! I'm attaching the sleeve and label and sending off by the end of the month.
I'm in love with the indigo basket blocks (I'm thinking 1870's or so) - 24 blocks with shirtings (two are very thin and might need a lining fabric for support). They are dirty and smelly, but I've started the cleaning process, one-by-one in case the indigo bleeds - no problems yet. I'm on block four. They are pretty wonky; but, like I said, I'm in love. I'll just whack them, ignoring handle points.
