I'm looking for any type of feedback/info/ideas as to what to do with some of the following pieces. These came to my studio after being moved and stored for many years. The owner is NOT a quilter and is looking for more information that I can offer her.
First up, a DWR
Lots of puckering and tucks
Corner shows the funky edge.
D cup? Biggest question, should this be machine quilted or is it just not worth that effort? or will it be an epic fail if I try to machine quilt with this piecing?
BOW TIES with signatures. All make by workers at the Klink Packing House in Ivanhoe, CA
There are 50 blocks approx 10" x 10" and I plan to trim, piece and turn these into a quilt. Any info or knowledge of anyone who worked at this place in the 50's. It's still operating, so this might turn into an interesting project.
Next up for this post, string stars foundation pieced on paper
a great variety of prints, but to put these into a top, the time invested would be great.
Looks like magazines rather that newspapers,
blocks measure approx. 24" from point to point and I have 17 of them.
Last up, a crazy patchwork that has been foundation pieced, but not in the traditional sense.
All the blocks have been topstitched, so the quilter turned under the edge of each piece, layered it on the block and topstitched it down.
Thanks, in advance, for any assistance or ideas.
