OH MY STARS!

At last, back on the blog. Due to something hinky with the platform of Google's Blogspot, it wouldn't let me post photos. And since quilters are totally visual and won't "read" without pictures, from October 6 till today, I was dead in the water. Enough of this! If Blogspot gets strange again, I'm going to Word Press to host this blog. Fair warning.
There, I feel better now...so here's a very cool quilt for today's eye candy. I bought it from a dealer who found it in a house sale on the south side of Chicago. Fortunately, the dealer thought the quilt was worthwhile enough to save--she said it was incredibly cruddy--and she washed it. Whew! After surviving a spin in the Maytag, only a very few seams popped. This amazing exploding star quilt is made primarily from cottons with a fair sprinkling of 30s and 40s rayon prints. I am in awe of the person who drafted and made this quilt.

Glad to be back, Vicki! Go to the Quilt Flap blog to see a quilt that may be more your poison, considering the theme of your first book Signs in the Blood.

Glad to have you back --- I knew you were still with us --- saw a picture (maybe at Houston? --- can't remember). We have fresh snow here in Lansing --- do you miss it?! Love the quilt --- will enjoy looking at it and will never attempt to make it! Happy Thanksgiving!
