I have some more lovely Lady of the Lake Quilts for you this week.  It certainly is a versatile pattern.

Lady of the Lake
63.5" x 73.5"

This one is pretty traditional.  It was probably red, white and green when made, the green having faded to tan.

Lady of the Lake
Double Pink
74" x 74"

Isn't this a sweet one?  My granddaughter would love it just because it's pink!!

This is from an expired eBay listing.

Lady of the Lake with Grapevine Appliqué
93" x 96"

I love the sweet feel of this one.  It looks like it could be a crib quilt by its coloring and border, but it is way bigger than that!

From the eBay listing:
"What a treat this grand extra large initialed and dated 1850 Lady of the Lake quilt is with its beguiling mix of crisp pieced angles and hyper-detailed, graceful, applique borders! The initials, near the quilt's heart, are coyly hidden in tiny tonal embroidery and read CMW 1850 and in the adjacent block MGW. Collected in Massachusetts."

I love this one and the glow it has.  Isn't it amazing?
