‘Somewhere In Time’ quilt – I think it has definite vintage appeal. I hand-pieced the LeMoyne Star blocks one summer during teaching travels. When the fabric line arrived I had 21 blocks ready to go with the new line – only used 16 of the blocks, and that was entirely OK with me, I love how this quilt turned out.
I enjoy displaying it over the cupboard door in the dinning room – the cupboard is home to some of our redware pottery collection (reproduction) and pieces of Bennington pottery (antique), I also see a couple of pewter plates – reproduction of course.
The walnut cupboard has jar rings on the upper shelves, must have been used as a pantry? It also has plate groves on the top three shelves at the back for display, not on the bottom two shelves. I bought the cupboard in Waynesville, Ohio – a long time ago. It fit in my mini-van, easy to take home. Russ was always afraid I may drive in with a U-Haul behind my van, I’m a good packer, didn’t need to do that.
The quilt is in my book ‘Hearthside Stars’ from 2005 – maybe you have it on your shelf?
