Antique Quilt and Blocks

Sue and Mery waiting for Lunch
Two Springer Spaniels like a couple of bookends

Yesterday I went to see my PIC as I hadn't seen her since my trip to Paducah. I needed to take the goodies she had asked me to buy for her. I couldn't get everything she asked for so I spent the remainder of HER DOLLARS on something I knew she would like, some antique quilt blocks from Cindys Antique Quilts, Suemluvsquilts NO BLOG I hope to see these one's made up into something or am not bringing anymore blocks back from the USA for you again :-) Only kidding.

Cindy's is a beautiful stand with antique quilts just dripping from ever where. She wasn't happy for photography but she did however let me photograph this lovely Applique quilt that she was showing to a customer. I loved it a real folk art feel to it.

Sue , Mery and I set off to the local pub at lunch time for a bite to eat and on the way back saw these two dogs sitting in the upstairs window of a cottage. They looked like a couple of Staffordshire flat back figures. They could easily have been used as a couple of bookends we had to laugh.

I also spotted my Hunters Star quilt that I exhibited at Malvern on Ferret's blog. she is praising Rosemary at Frome Valley Quiltings longarm machine quilting. Yes she did do a good job on it. Well she always does.



  1. Oh my gosh! The two dogs are hilarious!!!

    The antique quilt is beautiful and I love the antique blocks too. How nice to be able to bring quilty stuff back for your friend.

  2. Coming from the Potteries I laughed at the Pot Dogs in the window. How wonderful to get some air space from Ferret. The quilting was rather good on your quilt and your lady did do a great job. I like the look of those antique blocks.

  3. You are a kind and generous friend--I so love ALL my goodies. I promise the blocks will be put to good use--I'm thinking red sashing and a sawtooth border,or perhaps a little addition of some simple applique,or wide pieced sashing or-----
    perhaps some of your lovely blogging friends could come up with some suggestions and help me out!!

  4. How fortunate to be able to bring home some antique blocks. They look lovely. The applique quilt is pretty special too. What a shame they wouldn't let you take more photos.
    And what a great photo of the dogs!

  5. Lovely blocks and I look forward to seeing what suemluvsquilts does with them. Perhaps they could be put on point or add a centre applique block and arrange them medallion style around it.

    I miss English pubs - great atmosphere!

  6. I recognise that pub! Hope lunch was good - glad I've found this blog Sue W - it is really interesting! Jacky (Cupcake)
