As promised, here are the photos of my finished indigo crib quilt! This project had its beginnings in places unknown. The blocks were hand pieced and mighty wonky when I found them in an Indiana antique shop some years ago. I used some vintage fabric to sash each block and then trimmed them all to the same size and sewed them together.
I used a Baptist Fan stencil that I had to mark this for quilting. By eye, I added arcs in between each of the marked ones so it would have the close quilting I wanted. You can see how wonky the blocks are.
Here is a closeup showing the binding.
I pieced together some vintage feed sacks to use for the backing. I love how the quilting shows up here! My hand quilting is not great, but I have found that with lots of close quilting, you notice the texture more than the individual stitches. The texture is what I love.
It is living here in m family room for now.
Time to come up with another hand quilting project!
Have a great day!
