this is a vintage kit quilt from the 30s/40s. *CLAP* i LOVE these types of quilts. it has the dotted lines for quilting. this is the first applique one i've gotten the joy of doing, i have done a cross-stitched one. it says it was produced for Progess and is called (very creative name here) The Iris Quilt. i have the Bucilla Poppy quilt that i can't wait to have time to start. (gotta love Ebay!)
anyway, the ECQG quilt show preview show/award ceremony is tonight and i'm getting antsy excited...i find it hard to concentrate on just one thing....let me set the record straight- i'm not excited cause i expect to win anything, i just LOVE looking at all the quilts! and talking quilts. it's the one time i'll be totally submersed in my favorite thing in the whole world!
i would be a crappy show judge, i'd want to give every quilt a ribbon. i'd get creative with the categories too. *giggle* Best Use of the Ugliest Fabric in the World/ The Oldest UFO Finished/ Best Beginner First Quilt....you know...like that. but i like the idea that was brought up on the APQS forum around MQS this year: every quilt has a ribbon on it, some are just invisible.
come back tomorrow for the winner pictures....
