Slow Sunday Stitching hosted by Kathy. I still had a fair amount of binding to attach but I so wanted to get this quilt done so I plunked myself down onto the couch and stitched away while my husband and I watched an Indiana Jones movie.
Overall, I have invested a lot of time in this quilt. It is hand-pieced and hand quilted - everything was done by hand for this quilt - I did not use my sewing machine at all. I quilted it in an all-over Baptist Fan motif with blue thread. I love the old-fashioned look of this quilt!
One of the reasons that I blog is so that I can easily keep track of the info on my quilts. Unfortunately, I didn't start blogging until December 2010 and by then I already had all of the blocks for this quilt pieced so I don't have anything from that part of my journey documented.
I first showed the blocks for this quilt in March 2012 and I was just starting to add the sashing. Fast forward to February 2014 and I started working on the quilting, and now, almost a year later it is done! This quilt often sat in the corner waiting for me to visit and pet it while I quilted it. It has been very patient ;))).
This quilt finished at 73" x 83" and it will be added to the other two seven sisters quilts I have made. I only have four more to make.....and once I get them all done each of my six sisters and I will have one to keep. These quilts have very special meaning to me and to my sisters as well.
