I was going to wash it but really, it isn't dirty and since I don't like the puckered look of 'aged' quilts, I will leave it as is. My daughter and her family live in farm country where there are cows, horses and chickens. This quilt is called Pioneer Sampler and it was made in 1994.
This is what I have been working on a little at a time. I added two more blocks this morning to the 16-patch quilt after I ironed them.
I really do like this. It's cheerful, colourful and so simple to make. I am making it for one of my single beds so at 7 blocks across, it's fine (the blocks are 8 inches finished.) I just have to figure the length. Right now it's almost 8 blocks long and so I may make it 9 or 10 rows long. I have to see what colours to add and that's the main reason I took this photo (actually, a series of photos.) None of the darker fabrics have been repeated and I like that.
