I am going to go back and rework my making of a quilt thread before long.  I wanted to add pictures at the time but we found out our computor was not good enough to work with the camera and after we got a new computor I got very busy with cooking events and my pup I got in July.  I am nowmdoing several quilts that will be finished by Christmas and when I get all the pictures I will go back and re-edit it, I am sorry for the delay.

Any way a while back we were discussing making quilts on the Labrador Board I post on so I took some pictures to post there, of course I got some help and since it was a Labrador Board he was as well liked as the quilts. Wink

This first one is made for a single bed and is the only 9 square I have kept so far, the reason I made it was in my many trips to the hospital I decided I hate hospital blankets and made this so I had something of my own, there is a matching pillow case also.  The reason it is purple was I was home by my self the day after a 13 day stay and surgery.  I decided to make it and had 3 kinds of purple material to start it with.



This next one is the first quilt I made, double pieced about 6' 8" by 8' and batted with cotton.  The first picture is the wool side, the second is the cotton side.





The last one I have pictures of is the one I use under me in my bed roll and it is very heavy, about 5' 6" by 7' 6" the first picture is the wool side and the second is the cotton flannel side, it also has the squares pieced on cotton flannel and the batting is a couple of old heavy wool blankets pieced together.





You will notice that somebody got tired of me moving the quilts around while he wanted his afternoon nap.

If anyone has quilts they made or ones that maybe Mom, Grandma or others have made post them please, a Labrador is not needed. Wink  I have some more I need to photgraph and 5 more to be done by Christmas althoug one is a baby blanket and one a doll blanket.

Those are great quilts, Del. I particularly like the purple one. Outstanding. I haven't made one but can appreciate the work that goes into them because my sister makes some.

The lab is a good addition to any quilt, too.  Grin

It just so happened that purple stuff the night I got bored and started it, I might not have choosen those if not for that.  Anyway I'll get a picture of the matching pillow, also I have a banndana that is made out of the same material as the darkest square I take with me to wear on my head to keep the hair out of my face.  Well last  summer one of my nurses seen my quilt and bandanna and showed up the next day with one ot them tops like they wear made of the same material.  It was a hoot.

I forgot I had another one in a different file, but no Labrador on it.

This one is cotton calico and is 5X7, the batting is a thin piece of ugly wool material someone gave me that had a Christmas pattern on it.

The backing is a green and yaller flowered material and the edging is 2 inches wide of a maroon and flowered material.

Original Winchester Low-Wall, except it has one of the Springfiels Armory 22 barrel on it, chambered in 22 Hornet.  Pre-War Weaver rail mount rings in 1", I'm told they are a bit rare, plus a  El Paso Steel Weaver K12.   Paid $235 for the rifle in 92 came with the rings and a Scope Chief, paid $75 in 95 for the scope, have an El Paso K-4 also I bought for it for $20 in 92.

You wouldn't want it Will, like most Hornets it ain't accurate, will not quite do M.O.A.  Maybe 1 1/4. Grin

Del, I've got around 10 quilts that my grandmother made over the years, she passed away in 1984, so I don't know just when they were made, I'd set up her quilting frame every fall and she would make quilts all winter long. there's no telling how many she made through the years, we've got these 3 out using them

Whenever we went to visit my Granny we had to inch along the wall from the front door to the kitchen because she always had her quilting frame set up in the living room. Here she is with a quilt she made and sent to FDR in 1938:     (48 star flags)



I still have a couple of the last ones she made in the '60's.

Del, her brother is the one who had the farm between Sidney and Thurman.

John and anyone else, you can also open a free Photobucket account and simply copy the bottom link and past it and then the pictures will be in your post.  If I can do it anyone can.  Perhaps someone with a bit more ablity to explain it can chime in, where's Slim when you need him. Wink

This is a quilt made by my Great-Grandmother that won a prize at a Monmouth, IL fair in 1865. Evidently it was entered into another fair in Minneapolis in 1934 and won a Ninth Place ribbon. Colors are amazing as well as the pattern- "Log Cabin".

This was always called "The Baby's Quilt" by my Aunt. It was made around 1910 and all the swatches used depict children's cartoons or themes.

This is, I believe, a variation on a pattern that was called "The Wedding Plate", or "Dinner Plate"(?) Made around 1890.

Awsome quilts John.  I see you got it figured out, it's easy cause I can do it. Grin

BTW dated quilts are good ways to study material.  If it's in the quilt is was there by at least that date, most likely earlier.

While not a quilt, this is one of my favorites that has been passed down to me.

It is a women's 'undergarment' (Help me out here, ladies) not a corset, or at least no provission for stays, but it has lacing eyes all the way up the back. It is all hand stitched to create quilted designs and floral motifs. It is dated in stitching at the middle "Oct 18, 1843", which is the wedding date for my Great-Grandmother (who also made the first quilt shown).

This is a Buggy lap quilt. (Not sure you would even term this a quilt in the traditional sense.) It is smaller than a bed quilt, and very simply made out of wool strips with batting. The pattern, to me, reminds me of the woven "Chiefs Blankets". I have no doubt that it probably did double duty in open horseless carriages or just as a throw when sitting on the veranda. Around 1900.

John, I ain't no lady, but it is a bustier pronounced boost-e-ay, it serves the same purpose as a corset. And yes matal eye-lets and gromets date way back, not sure how far, but before that.

This is one of four that we have, all of this pattern type, but the colors of tiny print pieces are different on each quilt. Two were finished, one has just the top sewn together and was never sewn together with the batting and the bottom layer, and the fourth was just all the little squares carefully cut out and pinned together by color group in a box. We gave my niece the unassembled one to finish.
All ca. 1910-15.

Sorry, I couldn't resist this one since Lone Gunman mentioned the 48-star flag.

This flag was sewn by my Great Aunt, a teacher, for her classroom for the school year 1912-13, to the 'new pattern'. She died in the great Influenza epidemic of 1917.
