1  A project with history in Quilting: Completed Projects by BLucy on: December 28, 2009 09:50:39 PM
Sent this off to my mother-in-law and she actually got it in time for Christmas.  Wasn't expecting that.  The pieced top was actually done over 20 years ago before we even got married, but I never actually quilted it properly so took it apart.  Loved it and saved it and used it covering a big window for many, many years with always the intent to finish it properly.  My MIL (?) had to move from warm sunny Florida, to cold and snowy and hates the cold, so I decided she deserved a quilt. 

There's both hand and machine quilting.  Some done the right way, some done the wrong way on both types.  I think its about 52 inches square.  I was amazed to find a backing that worked so well.  It's actually a really nice flannel and just made the weatherd top look like it was supposed to be that way. 







I hope this all posts fine.  My first attemptwas unsuccessful with my first finished quilt about 3 years ago.  Yeah it does take me that long to get back to something.
