Quilt Festival Spring 2010



I started this quilt a few years ago and finished it last year. It seemed to be in progress forever.
I started quilting it on the Flynn frame and I had to take it off and just quilt it the way I usually do. Lots of readjusting. I do like quilting better this way. I never used the frame again. Some people love them though. This is the first finished pic I have of it (took today). I can't believe I didn't take a pic of it when I finished it. It's feedsack reproduction fabric and white. It looks off white or like it has a print in the picture but that is the backing ( a vintage yellow flower sheet) showing through. (The batting is very thin). This quilt is very loved and used everyday.

It's lovely and somehow very calming and peaceful.

The soft colors in this are wonderful and I esp. like the thin nature of it. It just adds to the soft appearance.

what a charming quilt-a breath of fresh spring air. Captured the 30's vintage feel.
