Antique PATRIOTIC American Sayings Throw Quilt w/Pillow
I'm pleased and proud to bring you this truly great quilt. I know it very well by now, as i have spent over two weeks in hand quilting the middle of it. Only the border and the straight lines through the quilt (the basting lines) have been machine quilted.
The quilt features lots of crazy quilting, and antique "cheater" embroidery panels. These all have sayings on them, and the quilt takes on the look of a sampler, in a way. The sayings are:::
Memories are treasures to be cherished; The road to a friend's house is never long; Cleanliness is next to Godliness; Better to feed one cat than 100 mice; Don't put all your eggs into one basket; A stitch in time saves nine; What's good for the goose is good for the gander; and one more you can find for yourself. There are 8 of these antique cheater panels in all.
The rest of the quilt is red and crazy quilt. The crazy quilted stuff got put in because I didn't want the cheater panels to comprise the whole design of the throw. I wanted them to blend in with the quilt, and the best way to do that was to make something louder than they were.... The red stuff is quilted in simple diamond patterns, by hand. There is a bright red backing on the quilt, of new cloth, of course. The binding is the same bright red as is the backing. The batting is dream puff, and the whole thing is machine wash and dryable.
The small pillow has crazy quilting and machine quilting on one side and medium blue fabric quilted in lines on the back. All of the quilting has been done with red thread.
The entire throw quilt is 63 by 61 inches wide and long. This is about the size of the average measuring tape, squared. The pillow is 11 inches square.
This is so nice for the family room, to snuggle together while you watch TV late at night, in wintertime... or used as a table cloth for a fourth of July picnic !!!
