My first finish of 2011! This is an antique top my late friend Debi purchased off eBay several years ago and started hand quilting. When her health started declining in 2005 she gave it to me to finish and keep. It has taken me this long to hand quilt it, as I don't sit and do that much anymore. Last night I decided I could do it, finish quilting that is and I did!
Over a year ago I had purchased some authentic time period fabric for binding from a dealer at a quilt show. This is a course weave quilt, but at least it was easier to quilt that way! This morning I put in a movie and got the binding done! I need to make a label.Last night I took a picture of the sunset out of my second floor west facing bedroom window. In the horizon are the Blue Mountains of Washington, a couple hour drive by road, although you can get to the plateau in about 1 1/2 hours. It's cool to see another state from my bedroom!
