We decided to quilt baptist Fans all over it - one that was a pretty traditional pattern, and two - she loves the look of baptist fans - so there you go!!!
And check out that backing - ALL FEEDSACKS!!!!

How are you quilting the Baptist Fans? I have a small pantograph, but it turned out kind of messy since I was behind the quilt.

Fabulous quilt. It's hard to beat the combination of Churn Dash and Baptist Fans. =)

That quilt definitely needs baptist fans. I've used it on old quilts also. That green is very close to the color I used on an antique I was fixing and quilting for friends. The colors in this just sing. Lucky you indeed!

What a beautiful antique find! Lucky you to get to quilt it. I bought a Baptist fan pattern recently, but haven't found the right quilt yet to try it out. I love that backing too!
