I found this picture the other day on Pinterest! It is obviously the initial inspiration for my Quarter Circle project although I don't remember seeing the quilt in it's entirety. I must have though because I've definitely lurked there at least once before! lol If you go to the International Quilt Study and Museum and click to search the collections, there is just one block of this quilt showing on the header. I LOVE that one block.
Quilt made by Elizabeth (Betsy) Cave
Anyway, that little tiny sliver of Elizabeth Cave's quilt completely captured my imagination and eventually led to me starting my own interpretation of her beautiful quilt. Funny the things that we find inspiration in isn't it? The whole quilt is fascinating for sure, but the one block is what made my brain cells start dancing.*wink
A few more bow-tie blocks for my Forever Project
It's been a long time since I've linked up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching and you all know I'm a dedicated slow stitcher woman! Sixteen more hand pieced bow-tie blocks finished up and only about eight or so are responsible for my crook neck. That's what I get from trying to sew in the car (in terrible lighting) while waiting on an airplane. We should have just went and waited at the airport, but then we'd have had to pay more for parking! Oh well. Next time I'll know better. Really, what's a couple extra dollars if it means being able to hand sew in (relative) comfort? hehe I already know how my husband would answer that question!
