Show & Tell November (Page 2)

Ellen has been visiting family in the US for a few months.  She finished the following quilts whilst away – she has been busy.

The first 2 are for her grandson and are a pair of quilts for twin beds, called The Underground Railroad quilt.  There is quite a bit of history to this design. I am still reading a book about this which I purchased in the US almost 2 years ago!


Ellen2  Both these quilts were hand-quilted


The next pictures are a double bed sized quilt, using a Disappearing Nine Patch design made with orginal 1940s fabrics.  This quilt has been machine quilted



They are really lovely quilts Ellen.
