Number 7

Quilt number 7 of Caro's Antique Quilt Collection is finished. I started with 26 blocks, dirty, faded, old (around 1880), with spots, loose seams. But that didn't discouraged me. I was convinced I could turn those lovely, unwanted, unfinished blocks into a quilt. I just takes some time and some muslin. You know I'm a muslin addict, but I think that muslin is very good fabric to combine with antique quilt blocks.

I wonder what the lady who made this blocks about 130 years ago is thinking? Would she like it? Would she be happy that here blocks aren't lost and finally turned into a quilt.

If only those blocks could speak.
