The Scarlet House
Coverlet Birds
Stash linen (36 ct, I think)
NPI silks

This is my remembrance piece--I started this the weekend my eye blew.  Grandmother Bessie taught me to "find a way to make it work."

Here's the back--pretty awesome.  Betty, the finisher is amazing.  I love the way she fussy cut the backing fabric.  The fabric is Farmer Fancy coverlet--makes the piece reversible.

Tomorrow I'm off to the quilt shop, am hoping to find some more Farmer Fancy coverlet fabric to use for the backing for Harry Tyler's lion.


  1. Very nice. I need to search my stash for the chart. It's in there somewhere!

  2. Beautiful! Love that backing fabric.

  3. I love old coverlets and so I do love that chart. The backing fabric is just perfect! Good luck finding more of it.

  4. I love this coverlet pattern and the backing fabric is so beautiful. Enjoy your week ! Mel

  5. Lovely stitching and finishing.
