There are several blocks that are fussy cut in my quilt There’s a Snail in Grandma’s Flower Garden (see my April 5 post for a full size image of the quilt). This is the snowshoe fabric that was fussy cut. The showshoes measure just under 1".
And here are some of the hexagon diamonds with fussy cut snowshoes!
I also used the snowshoes to make the dragonfly wings!
Quilting Gallery’s Show and Share voting is open until Monday at 6:00 pm EST so if you would like to vote for my quilt There’s a Snail in Grandma’s Flower Garden I hope you’ll pay the site a visit and cast your ballot here.
Lastly here is little curio from my collection. I have no idea what it is but I suspect it was made in Hungary. The label on the bottom is in rough shape but I can make out the word “ALAJOS”. The crest of the owl can be removed and it has a long dipper. Clearly something is missing; the little bit of chain at the front should be attached so something but what? I wonder if this was some sort of little oil lamp. Does anyone have any ideas what this is, where it was made and when it might have been made? If so leave a comment or send me an email; I would love to hear from you!
Well that's about it for today! Until I post again, happy sewing!
