Yesterday I was looking for another project when I came upon this old quilt. I started it back in the mid 1990’s and the center is handpieced. The hearts are hand appliqued. At some crazy moment I decided to machine quilt the outer borders. I used stars and must have not liked it. (OK the quilting is not good…)
Last night I put a binding on it. I tried tea dying it this morning;it came out lighter than I anticipated but I really like the way it turned out.
Lost and Found also applies to something else about this quilt. In the mid ‘90’s I was a part of an online group of quilters called GEnie Pioneers. We had several swaps and exchanges. One of the last swaps I did was 6” finished Ohio Stars. My theme was woven plaids. The blocks for this quilt are from that swap.
Recently that group “re-formed” on Facebook. How nice to have found this quilt at the same time I rediscovered our group of quilters. It has been so nice to catch up with my old friends. Serendipity, wouldn’t you agree?
