Vintage Quilts

One of my clients has the best ability to find Vintage quilts and blocks. And lucky me, I get to quit them!!! She brought this amazing little 9 patch over. Of course I Ahhed and Ooohed quite a bit.

And then she said - No Feather or Cross Hatching on this one - do something else.

Oh Boy!

So I played in my stencil pile and Voila -

That is is all laid out over my couches. It is not super big - a perfect size for a couch!!

and look - No Feathers
No Cross Hatch
And the best part is she was just thrilled with it
And can't wait to get it bound.

I will tell you - that the older the quilts,
The more fragile to fabrics are. This was pretty thin fabric after all these years

That's lovely! Is that free motion quilted with a stencil?

Alycia, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing vintage quilts get finished. It just seems like such a shame when someone's very hard work goes to waste because the quilt was never finished. Really nice choice of a new pattern!

Terri said...

How lovely. Your quilting suits it perfectly. Thanks for showing it.

I'm not fond of feathers on everything either. I'm glad she pushed you out of your comfort zone, and look what you accomplished! Good job! I would be pleased.
