Two tops done; one to be quilted

 Good day, and welcome to a cool but pretty day in the American Midwest!

I have been busy sewing in my corner of the basement (quilting nook).  First up:  a finish of a top in real feedsack and vintage fabrics.

This is the pattern Flower Garden from the book Scraps plus One.  I am sorry, I do not have the author's name.  This quilt is now at the long armer that I use, Boone's quilting (find her on Facebook).

A close up, so you can see the fabrics used:

I love these fabrics from the 1930's and 1940's.  Hey, I love all sorts of reproduction fabrics.

Moving to a very different era, here is a Snowball block quilt:

The top has a very dark navy border, and is nearly square.  I describe the beginning of this project in this blog post.   Each block finishes at 4 inches square.

Those little triangles are one inch on a side.  I'd like to make this pattern again, but in bigger sized blocks.  The reproduction fabrics used here remind one of the late 1800's and very early 1900's.  As I said, I love all sorts of reproduction fabrics.

Linking up with Midweek Makers, Wednesday Wait Loss, Needle and Thread Thursday, Put your Foot Down at the Quiltery, Can I get a Whoop Whoop, Nina-MarieFinished or Not at Alycia Quilts, Oh Scrap at Quilting is more Fun than Housework.

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt and stamp posts at

I love reproductions as well! Your Flower Garden top is amazing--I love looking at those genuine antique fabrics because I so love history. Your snowball quilt is lovely in those reproductions and very patriotic! Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.
