little folks mosaic quilt
this little quilt has been a real joy to sew !
Anna Maria Horner's Little Folk voiles , they look exquisite and feel like silk .
this quilt is on it's way to Sara in Sydney
I have a quilty benefactor ... she knows who she is !!
BIG thank you xxx
I am now the proud & nervous owner of these gorgeous flower garden blocks , 58 of them !!
they were hand sewn in the U.S. by an unknown quilter and appear have been made circa 1930-40.
I have never seen REAL 30's-40's fabric in the flesh , it is so pretty !
Should I join them all together ( I've never sewn hexagons ) or applique onto some backing fabric ? I am unsure how to show their full potential whilst preserving their vintage condition .
My youngest daughter & I spent the weekend staying in a luxe apartment on Sydney Harbour , we were treated to this view plus Robin Williams & Elijah Wood skulking about in the foyer & bar .
