This ‘Buckeye Beauty’ quilt was on show at Hever in September 2008. It is a great scrap quilt.
I made a couple of versions a few years back, one which went to a friend and I don’t have a picture(pre digital camera), and the other which I gave to another friend, but did remember to get a picture:
same block, but set on point!
What I like about these quilts apart from their scrappy quailty, is the quilting. My blue one was long arm quilted for speed, but the other quilt is quilted in clamshells…. a speedy method to quilt it yourself! I really like these ‘utility’ quilting designs. They speed up hand or machine quilting at home as they don’t worry about the patterns the patchwork makes. As usual it is an old idea seen in lots of antique quilts.
Sometimes we learn a lot from looking back.
