The yard-sale quilt was bought for fifty cents. Machine pieced, hand quilted, cotton batting, clearly much used. I think the pattern is Caroline (or Carolina) Lily. It was once pink and white, with red and purple flowers, dark green stems and lighter green leaves. I have dyed the usable parts of it and overstitched with perle cotton, using garden cloth as a new backing to provide support without additional weight.
I'm not sure what will happen next, but there are lots of squares to stitch and I expect to discover the next step pretty soon.
I stand in awe of people who visualize the project completely and then make it. They say Mozart heard his music in his head, then wrote it down. Thank God I am not Mozart (for many reasons, but mainly for this one).
