           The Major Ringgold Quilt blocks

                                   Block 8


            "Bountiful Basket"

This Redwork Quilt, dated 1891, is absolutely charming. In addition to the 49 different blocks that were created to make this summer quilt, the four borders are also filled with whimsical smaller embroideries. Although the original quilt was made with red embroideries, it would be lovely in any color - or even a mixture of colors.

Find the pattern this beautiful boxed set under the Hoopla's Patterns link.

This beautiful thread collection has been selected specifically to enhance the Emily Munroe Quilt. Comprised of nine spools of Valdani 3-Strand Floss, it is hand-dyed and colorfast with a combination of solid and variegated threads. They will add depth and texture to your quilt!

You can find this collection under the Other Products link and then under Notions and Miscellaneous.

These delicate "Needle Minders" are charming and sweet. Porcelain like, they are beautiful enough to wear as a brooch - AND hold your needle while you're sewing. Because they are magnetized, they can be put on a table or even attached to the quilt you are working on and you won't be searching for that pesky needle - JUST when you need it!

They make lovely gifts as well.This is just one of nine Needle Minders under the Other Products link. You will then find them under Notions and Miscellaneous. Be sure to look at both pages!

From the chintzes to double pinks, Florence's textile collection spanned the 19th century, with the possibility that some of her chintzes could even have been late 18th century.

Florence Peto LOVED fabric and LOVED using every little piece. Her lovely quilts are filled with "fussy cutting" from her huge collection of fabrics. Enjoy the new fabric collection from Florence's Flowerpot Quilt I've created with Newcastle Fabric! The pattern for this charming quilt is also available!

After two years of work, I'm thrilled to present the Emily Munroe Quilt pattern! This spectacular wool quilt, believed to have been made about 1865, is a true American beauty. This boxed collection of historical information, blocks, templates, and other "goodies" will be a wonderful addition to your historic pattern collection!
