If It Ain't One Thing...

It's another. Those cute little petrie dishes that visited about 10 days ago left a present for me: a cold. It hasn't been too bad, but it's been enough to keep me laying low. I haven't done any sewing either. Fortunately, I have pictures of a quilt my friend C~ found in a thrift shop a few months ago that I can share with you.

A lovely hand quilted Shoo Fly. Delightfully scrappy of course!

The border is unusual too. Leftover half-square triangles, I'm guessing, set in a liberated way.

I'm sorry, I don't remember what the quilting pattern was. I tried to adjust the photo to show it up better but it's still hard to see. Still, it's a happy scrappy quilt and has a good home now. :- )


  1. What a lucky find! It is really pretty!
    Hope you feel better soon.

  2. so homey and loved! and gotta love that scrappy edge border!
