But wait, there’s more…
A simple block, in two colors (and a classic turkey-red and white combination at that) but you get such interesting patterns and secondary patterns.
This was a trend at somepoint, competing to get as many tiny tiny patchwork squares into a quilt as you can. The one next to this had 23,ooo pieces (1/2 inch by 1/2 inch), this one was prettier though with those 1930’s fabrics.
My fingers hurt just imagining making one of these quilts – especially before rotary cutters and strip piecing.
And if meticulous piecing isn’t enough… elaborately embellished crazy quilts.
But the thing is, amazing as those are, that’s not reallyme. (This is me, by the way)
So, I’m going to end with this quilt: it’s got a great star pattern, and looks like it got a lot of love (and way more use than the purely decorative embellished crazy quilts)…
…despite it’s many cut off points.
Happy quilting, folks!
