Antique quilts and souvenirs
Yesterday I finished the binding on this beautiful quilt. A woman contacted me back in July and asked me about finishing a quilt that either her mother or grandmother had made many years ago. It was mostly pieced by hand and looks to be from the forties. The workmanship on it was beautiful and even after so many years (and bias edges!) the quilt lay almost perfectly flat. I provided backing, batting and binding and finished this family heirloom for her. I used my "King Clam" template for my Circle Lord and did clamshells over the whole top. It is such a beautiful quilt...I hope she loves it like I do!
And Finn...since you asked so nicely, here is a picture of the souvenir I came home with. I got 2 yards of this pretty little print. I have no idea what I'll do with it, but it was just too pretty to pass up. I'll just add it to the stash until it tells me what project it wants to go in!
