I was thrilled to help turn over the pile of quilts kept on one of the beds, and was able to peer very closely at them. They're all hand done, piecing over papers in the traditional way. Apparently before her eyesight went, she "managed" 26 stitches an inch, and you can see the sewing thread between just about every thread in the fabric, where the pieces join - but only if you look very, very closely.These photos are from the postcards I bought. "Moon and stars" has the moons made up of many small pieces, and the fields of stars are made up of squares with embroidery, just straight stitches, making the other points. Points - ah yes - are very, very sharp. Impressive.
A symphony in greys, with the same fabric used in various ways.
Leaves and creatures, her only applique quilt.
And this kaliedoscope must have been a nightmare to plan!
