The featured quilt today is “Gather the Troops”, the only one in the book with just a bit of applique in the handle. Basket blocks are favorites with many and our version measures 40″ x 50″.
This pass-through room used to be the dining room – now it’s the room between the kitchen and the piano room. The old pump organ lives in this room as well as a collection of small quilts, some new, some old. I have also collected white planters and vasess from the 30’s and 40’s after my mom bought me a McCoy white lamb over 45 years ago. There is a McCoy goat planter that I have seen only once and a lady picked it up in a thrift store right in front of me and she bought it! I really wanted that goat planter!! On the beam above the hanging lights is a collection of white pitchers. This room has a vaulted ceiling to a loft off the upstairs bedroom. That’s not very clear, is it?
Yes, that is a child’s ironing board under the table in the entryway. Very sweet. For those wondering about ordering the book Civil War Remembered where this quilt is published, please refer to a previous post.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
