One interesting thing about this quilt is that they have used a black piece to start the log cabin with. I know the most common colour of the inner piece should be red or yellow to imitate the fire. Using black is very special.
Here is the quilt laying on the bed that; referring to the history: Captain Dreyer died in 1808 after a battle between the norwegians and swedish. The bed is original, but I do not think the quilt is from that time because of the outer border that is quilted on a sewingmachine.
We wanted to get a good photo of the quilt but we dared not touch it. Then the owner of the house came and grabbed it and throwed it at the floor. Ooooooooops..... be careful.....it's antique....it's worth a lot. I guess you can imagine our eyes when she did that. But now we was able to get som good photos.
We don't know when this quilt is made or who made it because there is no lable on the back. But since this was a rich family I guess the owned a sewingmachine very early. And the quiltmaker has sewed it all together on her sewingmachine. And she have quilted the outher border on the sewingmachine. Who was this lady. What was she thinking about when she made it. History is very interesting. Below some closeups of the quilt.
My arm is still hurting and today my physiolady told me to call the hosptital. And so I did. So on friday I have an appointment with the docter to see what's wrong. Both he and I guess I now have an inflammation in my shoulder.
So still now sewing. Just a few stitches on my stitchery. But I'm very good at looking at soap operas now, Dr Phil, Oprah, Survivors island aso................... I'm going crazy LOL
But I go for a long walk each day. Have to smell the fresh air and enjoy the nice weather we are having right now.
Saying for today:
There's enough warmth in a friend's hug to warm up the coldest day.
