Not much new to share, so here is a post from October 2020, showing a favorite finish. Enjoy!
My Grandmother’s Flower Garden is done! I bought the vintage flower blocks many years ago and began piecing them together. There was a period of at least ten years when they never saw the light of day.
But this year I decided it would get done. I started hand quilting this August 11th of this year and have just now finished.
I had a hard time talking myself into quilting it like this because I knew it would take forever. It sure felt like it!
But I’m so glad I went for it! I used unbleached muslin on the back.
The binding is from a feedsack that had been dyed yellow.
It’s too small for this bed, but I love layering quilts.
Ah! That texture!
Thanks for cheering me on during this journeyIm so pleased with this quilt! Have a great day!
Temecula Quilt Company is having a little Scrap Basket Sew Along. You can find the first post about it here. The blocks finish at 2 1/2” and I have the perfect dies for that in my AccuQuilt 5” Qube. So I decided to play along.
This is the die I used for the first step.
Sure didn’t take long to whip these up.
She is making hers potholder style. Not me.
I think the second step just came out so there is still time to jump in.
