Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Civil War Legacy (We called her Myrtel)

(Dear Jane) Kathy made her son and new daughter in law this spectacular quilt as their wedding gift.  (I waited to post pictures until after the presentation at the rehearsal dinner last Friday night.)

The quilt is HUGE…110 inches square.  Kathy must have sewn at leat a million half square triangles, a quilting term that is actually unexplainable.  I quilted this, the quilting pattern is called Baptist Fans.

Quilters like to show the back of the quilt, the designs we sew usually show up clearer in the back.  (It helps to have a new camera!)

It was such an honor to be part of a beautifully made quilt for such a special occasion.
