Next Hand Quilting Project

I’m ready to start thinking about my next hand quilting project. I purchased this top at an estate sale about five years ago.

It had been basted with a very thick polyester batting.

I brought it home and took it apart. Poly batting would be so wrong for a quilt of this vintage.

At that time, I said it deserve to be hand quilted, but that wouldn’t happen by my hand.

Never say never!

Have a great day!

    Love this one, Katy!
    I am going to take a guess…Baptist fan quilt design?!? I know it is a favorite of yours, and is a favorite of mine as well…. Even if you use another quilting design, I know you will pick the perfect one!
    Looking forward to following along on this quilt’s journey!

    That is a beautiful quilt. I use to always use warm and natural batting when I hand quilted but I’m having a hard time hand quilting with it now. What batting will you use? Diane

    What a beautiful find! I too am not a fan of polyester batting. It has it’s place on wall hanging and more “crafty” projects that don’t get washed and worn as much. Mug rugs, table runners, simple things get my left-over polyester. Happy stitching! Love the six-pointed stars. I don’t see them much.
