I have seen a few of these photos of three centuries of red and white quilts which are on exhibit in New York.
Fabulous quilts great photos if you google the exhibit. I've a red and white top, which would never make this wall, but am tempted to work with some reds once again.
Have a boo on google.

I didn't notice BEFORE I started sewing them up that they actually are a bit off here and there. Now how did this happen?
My friend Mary noticed it when I was looking for background colours.

It's very bright in real life, as most quilts are. The top measures about 46" which is perfect for a lap quilt. I am going to quilt it at the cottage I think.
This little bag has such a history. It was 50 years and counting when I took it apart on the weekend to make another for my mother who has cherished it for that long.
She bought this original in Tortola, BVI, where she had her beach bar. Ah, those were the days, sipping pina coladas, watching sunsets from Cane Garden Bay...but I digress.
Originally the bags, made of heavy canvass came from Britain. Very very sturdy fabric which says it all. Anyway, my mother found a sailmaker in Tortola, had him make hundreds of these bags alone with about five
other designs and sailors who visited just couldn't

Yes, I'm posting on a Monday. I am back sewing and knitting still.
I found these jellies at Walmart. Walmart! They really are bright and the price was $20.00 for the two of them which have 20 pieces in each.
I have a couple of simple ideas to use these and also some prints to just
have a few tops finished to do quilting
when we move to the cottage next
