It’s done! I’m so pleased with this. It is my third hand quilted finish this year. If you recall, I purchased this top at an antique fair in May.
It was a perfect stress reliever project to drag around the country, sitting in hospitals, caring for ill loved ones, traveling to funerals. This quilt has kept me company through it all.
I kept the quilting simple so I didn’t have to mark anything. It is pretty wonky, but I’m okay with that. We’ve become old friends, comfortable with each other’s flaws.
The stars were all hand pieced and they were put together with the sashing by machine. This leads me to believe that I am the third person to work on this. What joys and sorrows might they have experienced during their stint?
As soon as I put the last stitch into the binding, I took a nap under this quilt. It was peaceful sleep indeed.
Have a wonderful weekend!
