Next door to my favorite quilt shop, Sew Sweet Quilt Shop in Brunswick, Missouri, is an antique/gift shop called Plantation.
I drop in there whenever I have enough time, just to check out the offerings, and I can usually find something I’d like to have, even if I don’t buy it.
The last four times I’ve been in there, they’ve had a vintage Lone Star quilt top for sale.
I’ve looked at it every time, and left it behind every time.
The last time I was in there, I was with my friend, Edie. Turns out Edie is an enabler, and she talked me in to finally buying the quilt top. That’ll teach me to keep going in by myself in the future!
Altho, I have to say, I’m really not sorry that I’m now the owner. Look at it!
Isn’t it fabulous?
There is a wide border on the top and a wide border on the bottom, and they don’t match exactly. My plan is to take them off and leave the quilt square.
Or I may add a border all the way around, but not in a pink solid. What do you think?
What would you do to it?
I plan to machine quilt it, with a little mix of traditional and modern quilting. It’s a happy quilt that needs happy quilting. Just look at these fabrics!
I’ll be studying it for hours while I’m quilting on it.
Once I get it finished, I’ll be sure and show it to you again, so you can see what I ended up doing to it. Stay tuned!
