a small group

You've seen a couple of these before and two of them are still under construction but sometimes I like to look at them grouped together.

This technique of wrapping the reverse fabric to form a frame on the front -- where does it come from?

Deborah said...

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.

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?

Deborah said...

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.
