Hopefully, I will be able to get the KenQuilt 622 set up soon. I have to move a ton of stuff so that we can tear off paneling so that my husband can access the wiring to re-wire it so I can have the sewing side of the basement lighted independently of the other side....and so that he can put a new light fixture in the ceiling and put an outlet in the ceiling to plug the machine into.
In the mean time, I have been watching eBay to pick up some other people's UFOs to practice on. This one intrigued me. In the eBay shot, it didn't look this pink. This is an interesting, if rather unsuccessful quilt, for a couple of reasons. The quilter chose red and blue bandanna prints to mix with solids to make this Ohio Star. It was set without sashing so that one piece bleeds into the other. Because the bandanna prints have large areas of lighter print mixed in with darker, the star doesn't hold its edges well. The white is set in the center and on all four corner. I'm not much of a one for pink and red together.
This is a huge quilt, almost king size. This is the best I could do to show you what it looks like, hung over the Bannister of the second floor landing.
This piece probably dates to the mid-1970s.
