Mitzi’s Grandma’s Quilt

A few weeks ago I was fortunate to get to work on a beautiful family heirloom from Mitzi F.  She explained to me how her Grandmother had lovingly hand pieced a star quilt from her and her sibling’s childhood clothes.  I couldn’t believe she trusted me with something so special.

She chose a red thread and a large all-over design so that the quilting would not distract from the piecing that her Grandmother had worked so hard on.  I think it turned out beautifully.

Here are some pictures from when it was on the machine…

Here is the finished quilt. (Please ignore the mess in the background, you can tell it was a fun day at Grandma’s house.)

Sometimes it amazes me how much a simple all-over can really enhance a quilt.  Thank you Mitzi for letting me help finish your very special top!
