While I Was Waiting
This technique of wrapping the reverse fabric to form a frame on the front -- where does it come from?
It's how my grandmother, great-aunts and great-grandmother did it. They all lived in Virginia and their heritage was native American. I have a vague memory of reading about it being an Amish technique but even though I live relatively close to Lancaster County, PA, I don't know if that is true or not.
that's a very nice group to look at!
Oh those are so sweet!
i like these. postcards? or postquards as the 'cold feet quilter' calls them.
Thanks! Postquards, I like that! Yes, most of these are that size.
Very cute. I like the primitive stitching a lot. I've been to Lancaster, PA---it's a beautiful area! My daughter lived in Ephrata for the year her husband was stationed in Iraq and I visited her there. We saw several covered bridges and tasted some yummy apple butter and homemade cheeses. Do you love it there?
I live closer to Philadelphia and also spend time on a lake in the Poconos but am close enough that sometimes I am able to buy the apple butter and wonderful cheeses from farmers' markets and roadside stands. I thnk I would love it if I lived there.
Purty!! I like looking at them too!
