Grandmother Newton's "Laws O Massey" Quilt
I showed the blocks I was working on previously, and spent this afternoon putting everything together. I had saved some indigos collected over time, and this was the perfect pattern for them. I made my quilt bigger than the pattern by adding an extra row of blocks. The pattern is from Home on the Plains (a Kansas City Star quilt book)
Amelie helped a lot by throwing everything on the floor regularly !
And I used fabric ONLY from my stash !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
This is a blog where I want to share about one of my passions - the Boutis - which is an old and beautiful Provencal art of the needle. I also love applique quilts, and make them often - usually big ones that take a long time ! Otherwise I love travelling, especially to our 100 year old cottage on the Southern Wine Route in Germany.
