Fabric and Quilts, OH MY!

Here's that promised photo of my new collection of Louetta fabrics. Mostly 30's and 40's with a few 50's thrown in for fun. There were also several WHOLE feedsacks -- what a wonderful surprise! There is definitely a lot of inspiraton in this stack of fabric!

The other day my boss called me at the library and told me to stop a a country church rummage sale on my way home becaause there were three quilts there and one of them looked to be older. So I did. I found a circa 1920's cotton crazy quilt. It was folded inside out like a comforter. It is in perfect condition and freshly washed. Of course I grabbed it! I looked at the other two quilts and they were circa 1970 polyester double knit quilts and they were priced higher than the cotton crazy. To each his or her own, I guess. I'm happy with my crazy.

As you can see, my dog Gizmo really liked this crazy quilt! I laid it out on my bed to look at and he jumped up. He rubbed his face on it and snuffled -- I think he liked the fabric softener. The quilt has some great fabric in it, too.

So much inspiration........too little time.
