Time for another quilt from the banner: the Folk Art quilt.
The applique blocks were in the closet for years-I had enlarged the blocks from a Little Quilts design, done the hand applique and then that was it, they sat there. When I decided at the beginning of the year to machine quilt as many of the tops in the closet that I could, I found the blocks. I added the large stars and the checkerboard sashing and border to make the quilt more “youth friendly” and made the quilt twin bed size ( and now I’ve put the completed quilt in the closet :-)
These are the quilts I am drawn to. I love folk art and got away from it but my heart always go to the darker colors and primitive patterns. Your points are perfect. You have inspired me to do a star quilt and I think I will use my stash of Thimbleberries or even some Civil War fabrics too.
I really love the appliqué in this quilt.. and it looks wonderful mixed with the stars.
You did a beautiful job with that quilt. But then everything you do is beautiful. Have a wonderful day!
