Mrs. Kirksey and I have had a wonderful time stitching together.
She's made a very nice top
that now just needs some attention from yours-truly
in order to get it quilted.
It will have dark binding -
the same fabric as the narrow inner boarder.
It has it's imperfections,
but overall, I quite like it.
The pattern was called "Rob Peter to Pay Paul" in a 1970s
McCall's quilting magazine,
but this is not what we know as that pattern.
With the help from a couple others,
it appears to be more of a "Kansas Dugout" variation.
I don't think names of quilts were as important in the past
or it could have been a typo or over-site at the time.
The pattern was just for the center design,
but I can't leave well enough alone and added borders:-)
It will be a full/double size.
Soon Mrs. Kirksey will be wiped down and
returned to her cupboard for a bit of a rest.
No rest for me though.
Instead of quilting on the quilt I showed here,
I decided to put a UFO in a hoop
and work on it.
I know - I'm the only one who has UFOs calling. :-)
It will be nice to get Gracie back in her spot
and to get the rest of the space back into
some resemblance of order.
(Feel free to do that teen-ager eye roll thing at that comment.)
Also, I am working on a post in response
to my last post -
specifically in regards to soaps and shampoo.
But. . . I wanted to share this with you
in the mean time.
Have a beautiful day all.
