Simply Finish Quilt

My Friday is ending with a finished quilt, and I could not be happier.  

Hubby and I have a list of chores for the weekend, and if no sewing is done I'll be anxious and sad, but I can snuggle up in the x-plus block all evening!

Everyone was in unison that the binding needed to be a solid, and I appreciate all your comments on that.  The backing is Carolyn Friedlander's Botanic, and I would use it again and again.  A little more Anna Maria Horner, of course(!) is in the corner, as I like my backings to be pieced also.  Also, this quilt is the second in a row that was very vocal about wanting to be only simply quilted.  So that is exactly what I did!

Please take a look at the faded quilts on the left.  One was made by my maternal grandmother and one by my paternal grandmother.  I have this "thing".  Touching items that are old and have been touched by others who are not here any longer is special to me.  I think about those people, even if I have no idea who they are or how long ago they lived.  I know they were once alive and used those items!  Ok, enough about my "thing"!  

Enjoy, and Happy Friday to all!!!  A simple Friday post for a long week!

  7. WOW, I love this quilt the colors are just beautiful :). My grandmother quilts, but I wish I had something from my great-grand parents! Some people are just not that lucky to have such beautiful items passed down through the generations.

  8. Love the mustard colour you went with for the binding! I have that "thing" too .. I love the history in old items, imagine the stories they could tell?
