I have received a number of PM's requesting that I share the Jane Stickle Quilt I am quilting to encourage those piecing one here. Yes, you really CAN finish one! :)
I am still in the quilting stage, with a little less than half of it to go.
I have quilted 91 blocks in the body of the quilt, 21 patterned kites (the edges) & 21 of the plain kites. I will do a scallop binding when done here abt 1/2 inch past the outer most stitching.
I pieced this many years ago when I really had no business undertaking such a chore, then put it aside. I finally decided it was past time she was quilted.
I am glad I pieced it. I learned more on this quilt than any I have made since or before. As previously stated, there were not as many beautiful Civil War Repos as now. I used a lot of Thimbleberries, etc on mine. (It really is brighter than it appears, I am a rather lousy picture taker. :))
