But, I will say it again... Quilters are the best!
When I posted my Noah and Matilda Sew-a-long progress (here), I mentioned how difficult it was to find reproductions of these 1890 neons. I had quite a few in my “collection”, but needed a few more 10” squares to round out the variety for the backings of my potholder blocks.
Cyndi and Sandy to the rescue! Sandy of (My Material Creations) sent me these beauties.
And Cyndi (Busy Thimble) shared her private stash of Barbara Brackman & Terry Thompson’s “Ragtime” line. Just perfect for the last few backing pieces needed.
Then on Sunday, my friend Karen (no blog), had the "7 Sistahs" over for "cake and take". She was downsizing her collection and we had dozens of tubs to paw though while enjoying her delicious orange cake - yum! I was able to find a few pieces to add to my small (wink) stash, when all of a sudden this appeared from under a stack. Oh Boy!! This was from my favorite fabric lines from Pilgrim and Roy. Not enough black in it to use as a backing, but I will be using it in the appliques when I need a green. Yum!
Thanks a million you three!
