I purchased this tied quilt on August 9, 2020.
I deconstructed it in the fall and started hand quilting it on December 3, 2020. I took the last stitch on April 17, 2021.
It was worth all the repair work and sore fingers!
That binding fabric is from my late, great aunt’s stash. I’ve used it for a number of quilts and it is nearly gone. It was perfect for this.
I used simple unbleached muslin on the back. It is my favorite backing for vintage tops.
I’ve said before that my hand quilting style is best described as quantity over quality. My stitches are not small and even, but they are good enough.
I will never tire of the texture from parallel lines of stitching.
Since taking these photos, I’ve washed this quilt. But that saga deserves its own post. Look for it soon.
Have a great day!
