It's a finish!
40 x 56
Usually when I make my version of an antique quilt I hand quilt it. For this one I used ecru perle #12. I just love how you can feel the fabric get softer and softer as I quilt.
I used mostly pink and brown civil war reproduction prints and used up most of my pinks. Not all of the fabrics were reproduction but ones that I thought would look okay together with the reproductions..
My basket is different from the one in the antique quilt. I like the original basket but it has a bias handle and I'm not too keen on making bias to match each little basket.
There's one light pink fabric I should probably not have used because it doesn't blend in and and stands out like a sore thumb but it has baskets on it so I used it. My quilt; my weird rules!
The binding is a brown and red print.
And the backing is a pinkish brown.
I think with all this work it will now go into the hope chest for my first great grandchild. I guess maybe I should label it with those instructions.
And sew it goes...
