This is my next project. I got it from Ronda during my trip in Seattle march 2010. Wasn't that sweet of her. It's called a curved or improved nine-patch, and it was very popular pattern in the 1930's and 1940's. It's one of those optical illusion quilts. Depending on how you look at it, it's a nine-patch in a snowball, or white pinwheels.
I don't know who made this quilt, and I don't want to offend anybody, but it I really must say, it wasn't a quiltgenius who made this quilttop. As Elaine would say: "no sharp points", especially where the curved corners come together it's really hobbelie-wobbelie. But that doesn't matter. Saturday and sunday I spend preparing and basting this quilt, cut all the threads from the back. Dinner on the sofa, because I needed the dining table for more important things. So I hope, that in a few months this "old quilttop" will be turned into a real quilt. One more quilt to add at "Caro's antique recycled quilt collection". Watch my blog, there is more to come.
