I light of the fact that I am busying with finishing up any and all projects....
I thought I would share one that was done!
This is my first paper pieced quilt. That means it was pieced together by hand.
Yup...no machine pushing those babies together.
I took about a year or so.
The fabric is mostly 1920's reprints. I added in a few others for color. I now know why my mom was a little upset. (You just don't do that in the quilting world!!)
Anyway it makes it mine. There is material in there from a skirt I made and a few from mom's quilts.
Anyway I finished the quilt blocks. Hand sewed the yellow middle part (sashing) in and left it to dry.
My mom and Grandma Slattery took it on as a mission to finish it up. My mom machine quilted the diagonal lines across and put the purple border on with the binding. My Grandma hand sewed the binding on to the back.
So now it's a three generation quilt and I love it.
It's hanging on my wall as you walk in the door.
