I was in for a real treat when Helen brought along
this book to share.
Helen knew I was making Di Ford's Antique Wedding Sampler and thought I might be interested to see the original.
Wow! It was fantastic to see these pictures and learn something of the history.
"This fabulously intricate quilt was probably made as a wedding present for Samuel Padget Hancock by Charlotte Gillingham his fiancee. The couple, both from prominent Quaker families, were joined in marriage on February 22, 1844. The fifty-seven blocks are all different and display a highly unusual combination of techniques, including broderie perse applique, pieced work and fancy needle-point embroidery." (Quilts a Living Tradition, R. Shaw)
I have completed two more blocks for
my totally addictive Value Proposition Quilt.
Nothing much to report on the kitchen front, hopefully next time. I hope you get some sewing time this weekend.
