Finish It Up Friday ~ Seven Sisters

It is done! My first hand quilting finish since my carpal tunnel surgery last July. It is wonderful to be able to hand quilt again!

I will say, this was a bit of a challenge to quilt with all of those seams.

But there were so many lovely fabrics to keep me entertained.

Here is the back. I like to use unbleached muslin for the back of vintage tops.

It is a new Saturday fabric to stabilize and strengthen the old, but yet it is still period appropriate.

I absolutely love the green and salmon color the maker used!

Time to find another project!

Have a great day!

    You did a great job of rescuing this quilt top from obscurity, from re-piecing the borders to your wonderful hand quilting. Brava!
