This fun quilt has been very popular with readers on our Facebook page. Audrey Bonar writes simply, “Doodle Bug Quilt made by my 10 year old granddaughter and I.” We love it. It’s cheerful and it’s so nice to see children involved in creating a quilt as well as enjoying the final product Thank you, Audrey, for sharing it with 24 Blocks.
We as quilters have our own language. We know, for example, that Fat Quarters is not a racehorse. We know, too, to gasp when one of our own says “one inch hexagons”. And, yes, this vintage-antique quilt is made of one inch hexagons. It was made by Karen Tooley‘s Great-Grandmother sometime between 1900-1950 in Southeast Ohio. It is beautiful and a family treasure. It shows great skill. Thank you, Karen, for sharing it with our community.
Seeing this beauty makes us believe that Spring really will come. It is so beautiful and we want to thank Kathleen Castillo for sharing it with us. Kathleen writes, “Aunt Annie’s Flower Garden made with original and reproduction feed sacks. One of my favorite family quilts.” The colors are so perfect. It’s a happy quilt.
Brenda Bradley posted this lively and modern quilt based on the New York Beauty block. She writes,”This nyb is called Rattlers trail, if you look closely you can see the rattler.” We may not look for the rattler that closely, we just love the overall energy and interplay of color in the composition. Thanks, Brenda!
