Pineapple

April 23, 2010

Our quilt trail team decided to place a Pineapple quilt block on the building where we do our painting as a thank-you to the owner who has generously let us use it all winter.  We realized after we had the block finished that the pineapple is a symbol of hospitality, so it was very appropriate.

Broken Dishes

April 23, 2010

It’s been a while since I blogged. Much has happened since then. We have two more quilt blocks installed, and another one going up tomorrow. This Broken Dishes quilt is probably close to 100 years old, and is the source for the design of the quilt block on the Marion Historical Museum in Marion, MI
Some of the members of the Historical Society came and helped us paint the block by adding some embellishing to create the look of printed fabrics.

The block was mounted on a shed next to the main building, which houses the antique tool collection.
