While we were in Atlanta, sitting out Hurricane Ike and waiting on new grandbaby, I found some great buys on eBay! Always a dangerous thing! I will post some pictures of the quilt tops that I scored! Now I will need to update my list of things to do!
I'm really pleased with this bear claw top. It's old, and hand pieced. I would like to finish this one, just need to find some appropriate fabric for the backing.
I'm showing a couple of the pictures. Probably paid too much for them, but what is it about that little thing that makes you keep bidding once you've found something you like? This blue and yellow one is pretty nice, trying to figure out what kind of quilting it should get.
One of the auctions I won, said it was VINTAGE AMISH BLCOKS. Well, I don't buy that after receiving them. Since they were pieced on foundation paper that had "Shoofly Part A" printed on the backside. Of course she didn't mention that in the description. Well, with any auction you take your chances, and for the most part, I was very pleased with what I got. I only paid $3 for the blocks, and they are nicely pieced, so not a total loss.
Another one that I'm very pleased with is this bouquet flower top. I have always loved this pattern, and have always wanted to make one. I think this makes it so I don't have to piece it, but now just need to finish it. Again, need to find something appropriate for the backing. Think I might go with a nice muslin or colored solid that is representitive of the 30's.
