the quilt you see in the header of my blog.

I want to share some information about it.
I bought it in Paducah, in the town during the quiltshow in April.
The dealer was from Houston.
I fell in love immediate.
What I like so much is the bright cheddar triangles,
And that it is not so perfect.
It is from ca 1880.
Good condition.

next time I will show you the little Lion in my house
Whait and you will see, she doen't want to be on a picture.

my quilt space

When I am quilting I always need a lot of space ,
never it is good organised,
it is always immediately a mess
I wonder how other quilters,
can have everything clean and tidy .
when I clear out my room I cannot find things.
but it is time to do it.
