|Here is the finished project. I love the fabric!|
|More borders! More quilting.|
|The center scene is so folksy!|
|a peek at the back.|
|The customer is calling this quilt 'Aunt Fanny' because of the fan blocks.|
|Her relative worked in a textile mill, and many of the fabrics came from that mill.|
|Even the backing is vintage! She had just enough for the top she rescued.|
I told her how happy I was that we could bring an otherwise discarded quilt
back to a useful life.
|Colorful batik scrappy leaves|
|I don't know if this started with a jelly roll, but the colors are sure nice.|
|Instead of backing and batting, the customer had us quilt the top to soft flannel.|
We have done this for her before, making a lightweight blanket for reclining in the AC while watching TV. Great idea! Panto: Brocade
|This is the hibiscus I will stitch in all the cornerstones of the Hawaiian quilt.|
I like it!
|I think the blocks are 16 inches or so. I had to be continually rolling the quilt up and back to do the|
echo quilting without the carriage hitting the rollers. Tedious, but it came out just like she asked for.
|Miss Molly was ready to go up and have some kibble, so I hung up the apron and quit for the day.|
6 PM and time for some down time. I think its going to be an early night...I'm pooped already!
