Here are three ideas I'm thinking about for the wall hanging above the fireplace. I'd do the pattern in wool felt, sewn with blanket stitch, or overcast stitch to a backing. I might add embellishments, like the ones in my previous post, or not. I'd build the first layer and then decide. All three of these come from this web site:

The bottom one is my current favorite. It was made by Ada Gingerich, Arthur, IL circa 1930.

The top one is also very cool. Info the web site has says: Triangles crib quilt, Kalona, Iowa circa 1930 41"x33"

I like the middle one also, but not for our family room. Colors are not right. The info there is: Broken Dishes crib -Holmes County,OH c.1930 37"x32"

Darn it! I thought maybe these were quilts you'd made long ago and maybe you'd give me one. ;-)
I LOVE them all! Like you, especially the 1st and the 3rd. Maybe I should make one.
