Paducah, Here I Come

It’s design wall Monday and there’s nothing new on my wall….but how about a design bed?  These are my blocks from The Quilted Fox First Saturday club, minus four that were rejected.  I used fabric purchased with my friend Darlene for the borders because it’s a gift to our wonderful Paducah quilt show hostess, Nancy.  Two friends, Sandy & Jan, our fellow lodgers, quilted and bound it respectively.  I think it turned out wonderful and since Nancy likes to travel, it’s a perfect fit for her.  Click over to Judy’s DWM post to see loads of other projects in process 🙂

Fox Visits ProvenceOver the Easter weekend I went to visit a few vintage/antique stores.  Usually I don’t see too many quilts that really catch my eye, but check out this fabulous pieced circle quilt.  It is just wonderful and probably a good deal at $375 if the rest of the quilt is in as good of shape as what’s showing. 

Antique Quilt 1As you can see it was hanging on a ladder behind other items so I didn’t get to look at it close up but the quilting shows so nicely in this picture.  The second quilt that caught my eye was this indigo bow tie quilt because of the pink striped fabrics and the bow tie blocks used for cornerstones.  

Indigo Bow TiesNo changes to the stash report again this week but I’m leaving for Paducah on Wednesday…. 😉
