Sally is back home




It is nice to have my quilt back home from France/Quiltmania. I'm happy we can use it on our bed finally. All the pink  is so lovely. It just makes me smile :-) 


Today I was reading the quilt book: Going West! and saw these cradles made out of cigar boxes about 1900. What a great idea. I can image little girls playing with these cradles made with love by their dad or grandpa.
And look at the doll quilt on the left page. The one with the LeMoye Star. What a nice quilt for a hand piecing project. Maybe I have to grab my ruler, cutter and some fabrics and just play like a little girl.

(who really want to play with a cigar box cradle too, yes I know I'm a dreamer ;-)

Hope all is well with you! I'm busy with goats. We've had some rain, but need more.

You quilt is beautiful. She looks perfectly comfortable and settled on the bed. The room is also beautiful with the soft pink walls, big window, and pegboard. Lovely!

The cradles are very interesting. Interesting choice of materials were used.

I love the bed the quilt is displayed on. The style of the quilt suits it well.

Fijn om je quilt terug te hebben. Ik vind haar erg mooi, met al die roze tussenblokken.
Mooi boek, ga ik zeker onthouden. Ik kijk ook altijd uit naar poppenbedjes, al heb ik ze natuurlijk helemaal niet nodig;)
Groetjes
