Side-step -

 
 
Yesterday and today I took a little side-step - 
 
And cut the strips for the binding - 
 
For my Basic Math quilt - 
 
 
That has been partially quilted for months now - 
 
Then I sewed them together - 
 


Rolled it all up - 
 
And set it aside - 
 
So it will be ready when I get the Free-motion quilting done -
 
 
Then I pulled some fabrics for my Antique Squirrel -


 
Found my Square-on-point die -
 
And raided my 2" strip scrap bin - 

 
Tomorrow we'll see how far I can get - LOL -

I also went back to yesterday's post - 
 
And edited it to include the information on  Barbara's label - 
 

 
 
EDIT - 1/16/22 - To include photo information and text of the label above - 

Pictured on the left above is Lula Belle Duck -
Pictured on the bottom right is Lillie Mae Duck - 
 
The text in the above photo reads as follows - 
 
1935 COTTON FEED-SACK QUILT 
Hand -made by Lula Belle Duck and her young daughter,
Lillie Mae Duck, Glencoe, North Carolina.
 
Glencoe, North Carolina, was the home of Glencoe Mills, the first
major cotton mill in the United States, owned and operated by the
Holt family from 1880 to 1954.
 
This quilt was entirely hand-sewn using scraps of many fabrics
including feed sacks.
 
Lula Belle's husband, Richard
Duck, was the Holt family cook
and probable owner of the
long-john underwear that was
inserted for additional warmth
with the quilt batting.
 
The ribbed underwear fabric
can be viewed  beneath a
worn scrap of the quilt top. 

Restored in 2005 by Barbara Moore, Indian Mills, New Jersey

 
This really IS an AWESOME quilt!! -
 
I want to thank Barbara once again for sharing it with us - ;))


Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Antique Squirrel - Part 2 -

 
 
 
Yesterday I posted about "talking" to a friend - Barbara
 
And said that I - 
 
===
 
... was reminded about an antique quilt 
 
That she had restored - 
 
And I found my post - HERE -  

From 5/12/19 - 
 
But - unfortunately the links to her blog posts are no longer valid - 
 
But here is a link to the Cotton Mill - Textile Museum - HERE
 
=== 
 
She still has the quilt - 
 
And was kind enough to send me some new photos - 
 
To share with you guys-
