It’s done! Dear bloggy friend, Ila, sent me this lovely feed sack top last winter. I was immediately smitten with it!
It’s nearly all made of feed sacks. It had the craziest seam allowances, but in spite of that, the maker had beautifully matching points.
I’ve had this backing fabric in my stash for some time and it was perfect for this top. I used the same fabric for the binding.
I used a pantograph called Woven Winds to quilt this. It is reminiscent of Baptist Fans. I had initially thought that I would hand quilt this, but given the massive seam allowances, I decided machine quilting was the better tack to take.
I love the design of the piecing!
There are a few stains that improved, but were not removed by washing. I care not, it’s part of the history. It is so cozy now. I foresee many picnics on this sweet quilt! Thank you, Ila for thinking of me. It may not actually be your favorite, but I’m calling it that anyway!
Have a great day!
