In the last post, all the talk about washing fabrics got me to thinking about “wash day” and clothes hanging on the line to dry. I always love the look of clothes on a line and, depending on what clothes, it can make a great picture. But the best is when the quilts are hanging. One of my neighbors still uses a clothesline and occasionally the quilts are out. I love it those days!
I found a few patterns that feature full clotheslines . . .
A Day At The Beach sounds pretty good right about now, doesn’t it? Someone has already been swimming and their swimsuits are hanging out to dry. This paper foundation pieced pattern by MH Designs is packed with detail, including a couple three dimensional effects with the kite tail and the clothesline.
It’s Quilter’s Wash Day with three beautiful quilts hanging between two bird house poles. Another paper foundation pieced pattern by MH Designs. The paper piecing technique will give you sharp point and near perfect looking quilts even working in such a small scale. Finished size is 15″ x 20″
I’ve been working on the Periwinkle Lane blocks – I love them! – and I’m looking forward to Block 12.
I also found a few jigsaw puzzles with quilts on clotheslines…..
I’m so glad I have a dryer and don’t need to hang clothes or quilts outside in the winter time, but this sure is a pretty picture of Amish Winter.
This makes another pretty picture but with all the birds Meeting At The Clothesline it makes me a bit nervous….. I hope those birds respect that quilt!
Well, all these pictures and all this talk has got me in the mood. No, not the do the wash, to quilt!
