A quiet week and a visit to Rug Hooking group

What can I say every time I meet the ladies for rug hooking group I get inspired. This is a rug Donna has been working on.This is a Jayne Hester pattern.

Janet was back East at a dear friends memorial and her friends family gave her a 1875 Quilt. The Calico's in the quilt were at that time three times the cost of a regular price of red calico at that time. Janet felt it was probably made by a northern quilter because of the cost of the quilt.

                                                                      1875 quilt

                                                             Antiques in that little shed

Another quilt Janet was given to her was a cute whimsical 1970's quilt. I liked the way the quilter added
animals and people to her blocks.

                                                               another quilt class

 Well this is a quick post. Lots to do this weekend. Enjoy the back of the Country Loft as I say see you next post,Hugs Cheri

What a beautiful old quilt. I did the math and it's in great condition for such an old quilt. It must be a cherished family heirloom. She's a lucky girl to receive such a nice gift.

I get inspired too when I see others rugs. I don't get much time to hook in the summer.

Wishing you a great week.
