Garage Sale Find
A few months ago I bought this quilted top at a garage sale. The elderly lady who made the quilt thought she had made it some time in the '70s.
I love the orange gingham in the center of each block. The quilt is truly scrappy...it has flannel, denim, and double knit. The rust fabric is the king size sheet she was planning on using for the back. I bought it thinking it would be a great FMQ practice quilt and (since it was such a bargain) I would donate it after I quilted it...only there's a bit of a problem...
It is huge! 90 x 110 inches! And very heavy. Too big for my frame and Juki.
I was thinking of turning it into four smaller quilts. So how horrible of a person/quilter would I be if I just cut it into four pieces instead of unsewing it?
Here's a rare pic of my motley crew together...Obba, Fred, and Siddi.
