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 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!
