as i wait patiently (OK NOT patiently for this fabric to arrive!) Collection for a Cause Friendship line by Howard Marcus should be arriving to quilt shops soon. I have been studying a few red and green antique applique quilts that I want to reproduce and started thinking about the hand quilting too, I pulled these out yesterday and well just in awe just look at the quilting in the next few pictures....to die for! Isn't it funny how we love them whether they are 6 stitches to an inch, 12 stitches to an inch , perfect not perfect. Why oh why are we so hard on ourselves?
my goal is to hand quilt more and just stop being so obsessed with perfect stitches and do my best.
thought you would enjoy seeing the hand quilting on a few of the antique quilts I will be reproducing the next year.
But first a PLEA to MODA please let Barbara Brackman do a poison green /acid green/lime green you know those greens in the quilts from the 1850's or so fabric line to go with this fabric line...WE NEED THEM to reproduce the antique quilts we all love....PLEASE!
so leave me a comment if your one of those quilters always looking for these turkey reds and poison greens from the mid 1800's , maybe I need to start a petition think it will work?
