On Wednesday last week we drove to The Busy Thimble in Litchfield, ME. Mom and I had a great time, this precious little cottage is filled to overflowing with Civil War reproduction fabrics and owned by the warm and welcoming, Cyndi. Surprisingly, Cyndi and Mom have a mutual friend from my hometown... small world! Cyndi's full size Log Cabin quilt (made from miniscule 1/4" logs) is on display in her shop (you can see it as her blog banner by clicking the above link), it's utterly amazing!
These two miniature quilts of Cyndi's hang near the check out. The Log Cabin blocks measure in at three inches and the Nine Patch blocks finish to one and half inches! Proof again that here's no such thing as scraps too small to save!
Mom loved her Bull's Eye Quilt! She's ready to sit and add the button embellishments now.
The texture that developed after washing and tumble-drying was completely wonderful.
I'm going to leave you with this parting shot: autumn in New England; it just doesn't get any prettier than this!
Life is Good!
