Old fashioned look
I have to show you some quilts that my SIL in a rural town in Quebec made many years ago. Whenever DH and I visit, there is always a portable hand project that I bring along with me. Over the years, she has seen my work and has always oohed and aahed, along with a lot of lovely French words, over my projects. On our last visit a week ago, I snuck into their upstairs bedrooms and snapped photos of all her quilts on the beds. Have a peek at them.
Can you see her style? For all her quilts, she used polyester knit fabrics and did an embroidery stitch all around the raw edges. With this type of fabric, there is no need to roll the raw edge and then applique or embroider the pieces in place. The first quilt has batting but not the others as they are used as a summer bedspread.
What can I say, except I love these quilts! Simple but sweet!
Have a great day, eh!
