I hope all of you and your families have a blessed Holiday time. And let me wish you a healthy and happy new year.￼￼
My second pre-Civil War quilt to show you is not a picture of the entire quilt. I am not at home and so I’m going to show you the close-ups from my photos, which are very revealing for the fabric they contain or don’t contain.￼
As you can see, although faded, the same chrome orange is present. This time the green is more on the blue side rather than the yellow. The browns and blues are very typical for the pre-Civil War era.
There is no black or lavender or bright turkey red. These colors are seen in post Civil War quilts.￼￼￼
Once again I have learned so much from my well-loved old quilts, none of them perfect .
At present I am in a nursing home for rehab. I will continue to blog, because I can’t imagine not being in touch with all of you dear friends. Have a very happy new year.￼
