It is nice to have my quilt back home from France/Quiltmania. I'm happy we can use it on our bed finally. All the pink is so lovely. It just makes me smile :-)
Today I was reading the quilt book: Going West! and saw these cradles made out of cigar boxes about 1900. What a great idea. I can image little girls playing with these cradles made with love by their dad or grandpa.
And look at the doll quilt on the left page. The one with the LeMoye Star. What a nice quilt for a hand piecing project. Maybe I have to grab my ruler, cutter and some fabrics and just play like a little girl.
(who really want to play with a cigar box cradle too, yes I know I'm a dreamer ;-)
