Once again, I have been remiss in posting on my blog for a while.  I haven’t been doing anything much which means I didn’t have much to say.  However, I looked through the pictures I took since my New Mexico vacation and I found some I haven’t shared with you, so here it goes.

All these photos were taken at the Montgomery Street Antique Mall in Fort Worth, Texas about 2 or 3 months ago. The first quilt was quite unusual.  I believe it is from the 1920s or 30s because it features embroidered and colored faces of numerous cartoon characters of that era.

It was a huge quilt and there was very little space to spread it out in order to photograph it so this is the best I could do.

String Pieced Tulips
Can't recall the name of this block.
Nice red, white and cream combination.
Wonder if the cream fabric used to be
green but lost it's color due to the
dying process.

Roosters and Horses on border.

This one was a cool quilt made from tobacco premium felts.  If you wish to learn more about tobacco felts, click HERE.



All in all, it was a great day for quilts at the antique mall.

Until the next time, may your bobbin always be full.
